From the Moderne cinema to modern day facilities…

Bournemouth Community Church (BCC) purchased the  Lifecentre building in Feb 2009 from Gala Bingo.  In the 4 years since its purchase over £2 million has been spent on a complete face-lift, incorporating new offices, LIFEhouse drop in centre, a cafe-style area, a 1000 seater theatre, a 180 seater multi media conference room, several mid-sized meeting rooms, all new toilets, lift and much, much more.

We received an email from a group of friends who come into the building every week: “I wanted to express my thanks and praise to your amazing team. The people are always so kind towards us. I have been so impressed, nothing has ever been too much trouble. Fencing has been provided for our babies and we were even treated to some food!! You have been a blessing to us week after week and I am so moved by how loved and welcome you have made a bunch of strangers to you – God’s love being demonstrated. Thanks for all you are doing to see your community transformed.”
