Challenges

 

  • Lack of our means of transport. The centre depends o hiring cars from different diocesan departments for transport in order to meet the needs of the centre. This is costly.
  • There is need for a large hall for conferences and meeting. It is sometimes difficult to accommodate large meetings. The available rooms are enough for only small groups meeting.
  • Suit rooms are needed in order to meet the need of special requests from workshop/seminar participants.
  •  Increased rooms for accommodating quests as well as supporting staff (hen on night duty) would be beneficial.

May God bless His work and the service rendered by His people, to His people for the Glory of His name.
