Transcript

  • 1. Holy Trinity Partnership’s Neighbourhood Challenge Fr. Michael O’Donoghue Robert Beall Jo Butler
  • 2. A Partnership Centre 25 years in the making!
    • Silver Jubilee
    • celebrations of ‘new’
    • Holy Trinity Church
    • building in Newark
      • A celebration not just of bricks and mortar, but of Church & Community in the widest sense.
      • A programme of events encompassing every age and parish group: spiritual, pastoral and social
  • 3. Bringing people together in Church…and Marquee
      • The only place to accommodate the entire parish in addition to the church was in a purpose-built marquee
      • The huge marquee was the best way to bring big numbers together to celebrate as one parish community and family –
      • even the final Mass of the week was celebrated in there!
  • 4. The Transition from Marquee to Partnership Centre 2004 2005
  • 5. But a transition doesn’t happen overnight…
      • A year of meticulous planning from 2003 to 2004 to transform from a lack of facilities to a carefully considered and designed multi-functional building – the next building blocks in the development of Holy Trinity Parish AND the wider community
      • Insert needs analysis from appendix a1 of the business plan
  • 6. … after the plan came the build
      • The building’s erection wasn’t left to the architects. This was not just a physical building: the parish continued to meet to talk about the interiors, to chart the progress of the project, parish groups continued as always, looking ahead to better facilities, a chance to grow memberships, organise more events and continue to improve community cohesion
      • TO GREAT CELEBRATION IN OCTOBER 2005, THE HOLY TRINITY COMMUNITY & PARTNERSHIP CENTRE OPENED, AND SHORTLY AFTER WAS BLESSED BY BISHOP MALCOLM
  • 7. The community supported with funding…and more!
      • Over 40 charities and other organisations were approached to support the creation of the Community & Partnership Centre
      • At a total build cost of £650,000 it was essential to receive community support
      • Key partners funded cash and donations large and small to deliver the project:
      • WREN £50,000
      • BIFFA £50,000
      • WESTFIELD FOUNDATION £ 5,000
      • AGE CONCERN Cooker
      • And many others donated time & money
  • 8. And for the past 5 years the Centre thrives at the heart of the community
      • Community and Parish groups, social functions, school events, fundraisers – all of these happen on a regular basis. A true Community and Partnership Centre – it does what it says on the tin!
    First Communion Groups Weddings…Funerals…Baptisms Diocesan Groups Alzheimers’ Cafe Childrens’ Liturgy Parents & Toddlers Luncheon Club for older community members Friends of Holy Trinity School Leanord Parkinson Disability Group After-Mass refreshments
  • 9. We’ve evolved over 5 years into a Community Partnership Centre; Now it’s time for the next stage of our evolution: The Neighbourhood Challenge! So that brings us up to date:
