What’s the HUB?
The Hub will be the headquarters of Derby City Mission from which we will continue to deliver existing and NEW services to people in the city of Derby. The building will be 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 our guests can receive professional help in mental and physical health
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 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
Safe space: a place where Street Pastors base their operations from at weekends to support people enjoying the night life of Derby
A 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!
WHY do we need it?
Staff numbers have doubled in the last year and our current building is inadequate in size to be able to offer new services and training. Now that we have great favour with the authorities in Derby we need to capitalise on the wave.
HOW much does it cost?
The building will cost about £900,000
We will fund it by:
- taking out a mortgage
- selling our existing Charnwood Street building
- using reserves and donations from individuals and grant making trusts
- additional income from renting part of the building to a third party to help pay off the mortgage
OUR APPEAL TARGET
We need £550,000 in 8 weeks!
