The Woodbrook Pentecostal Church has embarked on the construction of a multi-purpose complex. This became necessary because of the poor and quickly deteriorating state of the previous structure also its qualitative and quantitative inadequacies and the need to facilitate an expanding range of new functions now being performed by the church.
The Project will also ensure that the Church meets its commitment to convene high quality training programmes to equip members for positions of leadership in the home, church, society and nation and to introduce exchange programmes which will allow visiting Ministries to share and impart truth.
The Church Complex would be approximately 47,000 square feet, and would contain, among other things: a Church auditorium seating approximately 2,500 persons, which will include mezzanine and balcony seating; 5 dedicated conference rooms; beautiful rooftop ambience for social events; smart building technology concept; basement parking; state of the art electronic systems; a three level administrative annex at the rear; and video and audio production facilities. At ultimate completion, the building will have the capacity to stream live, church services and other activities around the world.
Construction of the complex started in March 2003, but has proceeded slowly because of financial challenges, among other things. To date the following were completed: 90% of excavation, 75% of foundations, 81% of the retaining wall and 78 % of the footings. A pictorial impression of the progress with the construction could be gleaned from the following pictures of work on the site.
Progress in the building has been achieved primarily through the consistent and sacrificial giving of church members, with some support from affiliated churches and one businessman. The church members continue to support the project financially, but for it to be a success in a reasonable time frame we would need the financial support of the Church Universal.
