We are working on something exciting and we can’t wait to share it with you!
The Salvation Army Barrhaven Church moved from Woodroffe Temple Corps to Barrhaven in 2009 with plans to build a new church home in the community of Barrhaven. Ever since, we have been envisioning a new space that better meets our needs (to read more about the history of Barrhaven Church, go to the “Our Story” page). It has been a journey of over ten years, but we can now say that we are beyond the planning stage and construction has begun at 102 Bill Leathem Drive on our new Church and Community Ministry Centre!
Our Ground-Breaking Ceremony was on April 24, 2022, which signaled the official start of the project. Click here to read more about that event. As we gathered together in celebration, we met with Salvation Army representatives and City dignitaries, as well as church and community members. We were also joined by our band while the Salvation Army EDS team gave out delicious treats. The project schedule is going ahead as planned, and we still anticipate being able to move into the first phase of our new space in Spring, 2023, while we plan towards finishing Phases 2 and 3. We will be posting regular updates on our website and social media channels throughout the lifecycle of the project.
While we are grateful for community partners that have allowed us to use their spaces for worship and programs, we are excited to have a home to call our own. Our new Church Building and Community Ministry Centre will be a local hub with multi-purpose spaces, worship space, a gym, a commercial kitchen, and more. Our aim is to serve the community of Barrhaven with a building that meets the needs of our neighbours through innovative worship and programming. As we continue to strive towards being “Real and Relevant in Barrhaven”, this project is just one part of our vision to show Christ’s love to our community.
Check out the updated collection of pictures below and follow our progress as we look forward to the completion of Phase 1 in Spring, 2023. For more information on the building project or our current programs, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 613-440-7555 x 101.
We are looking forward to seeing what God will do in the community of Barrhaven as we answer His call to serve the practical and spiritual needs of the community.
