For some time now, we’ve faced significant challenges connected to our head office buildings, Jubilee Mill and Jubilee Centre, no longer meeting our needs as an organisation. While we love Jubilee Mill, attempting to reconfigure the building to match our unique and growing needs has proven not to be financially sustainable.
Even with the increase in hybrid and remote working, it’s still really important for us to have a suitable site for our staff to work together now and in the future, so that we can continue to deliver help to our clients and equip churches to transform their local communities.
Having looked carefully at all the options, we found that the best way forward was to relocate, preferably into one single building with better accessibility for all, including, importantly, disability access.
And, praise God, we found a building that met these needs, within our budget, and still in our home town of Bradford. In fact, it’s only a mile down the road from our current location, in the former offices of a local building society.
So what are the next steps? We’ve sold one of our existing buildings already, and we hope to be able to move in to our new home at the start of next summer. This gives us some time to get the new building ready to use.
Of course we’ll update all our supporters, clients and partner churches with the details of our new address. But in the meantime, we wanted to say how grateful we are to have found this answer to our prayers.
