City gets keys to the Kingdom
KINGDOM of Light Church in Bentley will become a community hub for locals. The City of Canning last week approved the purchase of the 800sq m building next to Hillview Park and a small group of retail shops.
It will be converted from a church into a community centre, where Bentley and St James residents can take part in a range of programs. Canning Mayor Paul Ng said he was pleased the City had identified that the Bentley and St James communities needed their own community hub where local residents could meet, enjoy events and have an opportunity to connect on a social level. “Council has agreed on the purchase of the building and City staff will now begin planning for the necessary modifications to turn it into a vibrant community centre,” he said.
“Our aim will be to provide a range of services meeting the needs of the City’s diverse population.”
