IS54 THE CENTRE – BUILDING A FUTURE FOR OUR COMMUNITY
IS54 (Isaiah 54)
In our early years we met at another venue. A prophetic word was given to us 1990 to “lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes, for you shall expand to the right and to the left (Isaiah 54:2-3).” Several other prophets confirmed this word over the ensuing years. God began to enlarge the vision of what He wanted to do with Abundant Life and with that came the realisation that we needed to look to the Lord to provide us with our own premises.
In 1996 the Lord led us to purchase our land here at 36 Sutherland Road. Most of the necessary work of altering and renovating the building was accomplished through willing volunteers from the church family. The 150-seat centre was officially opened 1 March 1997. The next step was to “quick-build” the offices and youth centre during January and February 1998.
It is a tremendous testimony to God that through the generosity of His people the property was completely freehold within three years of our official opening.
The vision for the land was now to move into the ultimate stage. In 2001 work was commenced on “IS54 – The Centre”. This is a multipurpose facility with the capacity to seat 600 people, uniquely designed to become a new community hub in our Brookfield / Judea suburban. A place where people are healed, taught, restored and released into the fullness found in Jesus Christ. As transformed people we are able to transform our community.
The property is dedicated to the glory of God and we look forward to the years that lie ahead of us as God uses the facility to bless and minister to our community.
