City gets keys to the King­dom

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

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.”
