In September 2010 we launched a second venue right in the heart of Seaford. After six years of hiring places to meet, it’s time for our Seaford venue to set up home.
We’re excited to announce a fantastic opportunity to purchase the Cross Way Centre, an old Methodist building dating back to the 1890s. For over a century this building has been used as a place of worship, a place where the gospel is preached, a place where people have come to know Jesus Christ. This could be the first permanent home of Kings Church Seaford, a base out of which we can celebrate the message of Jesus and demonstrate its life altering implications for the world.
The Cross Way Centre will offer us many things. It will open up new possibilities for reaching Seaford. A place where we can run Alpha courses, cafés, youth hangouts, kids work and baby and toddler groups. It will give us visibility with its position right in the heart of Seaford town centre. And we can adapt and shape the building to suit our needs.
Watch the video above for the full story: our history and vision, and a tour of the church building.
How you can make this a reality
Our Seaford venue will need around £125,000 to act as a deposit on the building. We then need a regular income substantial enough to service a mortgage. There are four ways you can help make the purchase of Cross Way a reality:
- Make a one-off gift
- Consider giving regularly for the first time at Seaford
- Increase your regular giving at Seaford
- Offer an interest-free loan
We believe the purchase of Cross Way will be a fantastic resource and of great value to our Seaford venue as it becomes its own church in September of this year.
A note on our 2017 Gift Days
This year’s gift day will be split into two parts and cover two towns. While part one focuses on Seaford we are planning to have a second gift day in the autumn as we look to redevelop the Kings Centre in Eastbourne, equipping it to fulfil our vision of seeing one hundred families added to the church over the next five years.
The venue you attend at Kings will naturally shape your giving. Whether you’re part of Seaford, Centro or Hampden Park, prayerfully consider how you can give in both our gift days this year. We’re all in this together: we want to see churches for everyone grow in both our towns.
