Transformation and change

As our readers will have noticed the Dandenong Bible Education Centre recently celebrated 10 years of serving the Dandenong Community. During this time the Dandenong Ecclesia has managed the Centre with the tireless and vital assistance of the many volunteers who have helped in the Shop and Library with all the activities which have taken place. We have been blessed with many visitors to the Centre and we have enjoyed being of help to them.

As with all activities there comes a time when we have to make changes. Change is often difficult and yet it is an inescapable part of growth. In the case of the Bible Education Centre circumstances have made us reexamine how we do things. After prayerful consideration, we have come to the understanding that it is time for a different focus for our activities. As such we are not renewing the lease on the Shop and will be closing on 24 th December 2014. We will continue our Sunday service and classes and our Wednesday evening class until the end of February 2015, after which we will be moving out of the Centre.

The Dandenong Ecclesia will continue in Dandenong! We will hold Sunday meetings and classes at The Castle 1 on Princes Highway in Dandenong, God Willing, commencing on the 15 th March 2015. Further details will be available closer to the date, but we hope to welcome old and new friends to our Sunday activities. Other activities will be advertised from time to time as well and we will advertise these.
