Building for the future

Our plans for a building in Canterbury

This prophecy, given by Julian Adams in 2006, is one of a number of prophecies we have received as a church which has given us the belief that at some point we will have a building and buildings of our own to support the vision God has given us. 

We are now in a phase of praying, waiting and ongoing investigation as to where our first building will be as we continue to exercise faith that God will provide buildings for us. We have also continued giving to our Building Fund through regular gift days and ongoing monthly and one-off gifts. If you would like to give to the Building Fund then the account details are:

Account name: The City Church
Account number: 10148531

Giving from the Building Fund

 
In line with our broad principle of giving away at least 10% of what we receive as a church we have made the decision to give at least 10% of what is given to the building fund on sustainability projects in the developing world.
 
To date we have given to the following:
 

Pathways from Poverty Christmas Appeals 

We have partnered with our apostolic sphere Relational Mission to give to a number of development projects within other apostolic spheres within the newfrontiers family.
