Why do we need a Community Hub?

We have secure new premises and we are currently in the processes of funding for our new Community Hub building.  Staff numbers have doubled in the last year and our current building on Charnwood Street is inadequate in size. We have no space to meet with people to see them restored in a relationship with God, to introduce new services or run training courses. If we stand still we will go backwards. Now that we have great favour with the authorities in Derby we need to capitalise on the wave.

What will we use it for?

The Hub will be the new headquarters of Derby City Mission from which we deliver services to people in the city of Derby. The building is a God given space in which we help restore broken people and introduce them to the benefits of a relationship with God.

The Hub will be a multi-functional space and will provide the following services:

  • Restoration space: a place where guests receive holistic care for mental, physical and spiritual wellness and we address addictions, financial issues, sense of worthlessness, strains in social relationships and criminal tendencies
  • Public space: a place to run a café, to build relationships and to move people from chaotic to contributory lifestyles
  • Supportive space: a place where we can hold mentoring sessions with clients to help them achieve their personal goals
  • Meeting space: a place where we meet and work with agencies in the city who share our passion for the disadvantaged in society
  • Prayer space: a place where we can worship God and pray for God’s work in the city. We want the building to glow with God’s love and prayer for deep transformation
  • Outreach space: a place where we can expand our work into local schools and run children’s clubs
  • Training space: a place where we can run the an ‘Urban School of Mission’ equipping and training staff and churches
  • Productive space: our new headquarters!

 

HOW will we fund it?

The building will cost £900,000 (plus £120,000 for refurbishments) and we will fund it by:

  • Taking out a mortgage
  • Selling our existing Charnwood Street building
  • Using our building fund and donations from individuals and grant making trusts
  • Additional income from renting space to other charities having similar values and aims, to pay off the mortgage
