Dear friends,

We are delighted to tell you that we now have received planning permission for the Light House to be designated for Community Use, and for the external developments to the entrance, including addition of a lift, balcony and new first floor section, and also a new entrance access from the Coach Road side of the building, which will help integrate all the spaces.

Dear praying friends,

Exciting times! Our two biggest prayer requests in the last few years have been answered amazingly – not only do we now have keys to the building, but we have our new Youth Worker…only better than that! As you know we have been aiming to get an Irish youth worker, as we wanted someone who understands Irish culture and also will be able to stay around for a while to build relationships.

James has lived in Ireland for most of twenty years and plans to be around for a while yet, and we are blessed to have his lovely Irish wife Rachel onboard too. Both they and the KCC Board believe God’s hand is on their appointment to jointly carry out the role not just of Youth Worker, but also that of Centre Manager, which will involve working with us to share the vision and develop the reality.
We are thrilled to have a couple of such maturity and experience, both have been working as pastors and have been involved with planting churches, training and discipling. They start officially next year, but are already rounding up potential leaders. Here’s a potted bio:
