Community Hub Partnership with the John Howard Society

Our Community Hub Location - 140 Joyce Avenue, Moncton

 We’ve got exciting news! After months of searching and evaluating our options for land to build our new home, we’ve found it! Thank you for your patience, prayers and steadfast support. Our journey continues…

We announced at our congregational meeting on September 15 the land is located at 140 Joyce Avenue. The lot is situated amidst a number of low-rise apartment buildings. Immediately north are the residential areas off Hennessey, Elmwood and McLaughlin Drives, an area of Moncton that is growing! The well-established neighbourhoods of Sunny Brae are to the south. This area of northeast Moncton has little community gathering space, and we are confident the 'Community Hub' project will strengthen the sense of neighbourhood in this area of our city.

The location provides an excellent opportunity for Visions to engage the local community with our worship, programs and outreach.

Key updates:

  • The purchase of land was finalized.
  • On September 25th, the Public Advisory Council of the City of Moncton approved the few variances necessary before a building permit can be issued.
  • Revised plans for the 24,000 square foot building, architectural drawings and the site plan will be on display this Sunday, September 29th!
  • The first neighbourhood information session was held September 26th. More sessions will be scheduled within the next month.

 

Next Steps:
We’re ready to break ground soon!

Stay tuned for a groundbreaking ceremony.

The targeted completion date is estimated the end of August 2020.

 

We hope you are as excited as we are. We know you have questions and we want you to be involved and up to date on our progress so expect regular updates as we reach certain milestones.

 

Join us this Sunday, September 29th, at 11:30am following our Spirit Gathering for an Information Session and opportunity to answer your questions.

 

Please reach out to any of us on the Joint Steering Team if you have any questions or ideas to share: Peter Lightfoot, Linda Higgins, and Rev. Shawn Redden.

 

Your continued prayers and support are appreciated. We’re glad to be on this journey together.
