Project 2065

Please note

The information below may currently be incorrect due to the ongoing pandemic. All activities have been suspended, and we are focussing on online church and our community response at this time. Find out more here or get in touch for more information.

Project 2065 is all about looking to the future. A lot can change in a generation or two, and the buildings that we use are no exception.

The building in which we meet each day of the year has been well-used since conversion from an old rag factory in 1886: for services, rehearsals, small groups, large groups, our community work and just to meet with our friends. It is inevitable that one day it will need replacing, most likely within fifty years.

We are fortunate that the foresight of those who came before us in Canterbury and in The Salvation Army means that we are blessed with our current facilities. Their generosity and passion to use their money for God means that we have a church building that helps us to carry out our mission in the city. Now it is our turn!

Raising funds for a building project is a daunting task but as ever a mantra of ‘little and often’ makes things much easier. Over the next decades we will have various events to raise money, just like the banquet which will launch the whole project. The most effective way of raising money, however, will be in regular giving.

We are asking you to make a commitment to contribute to our fund for the future. Here’s a look at what we could raise:

Donating is easy. You could put together the simple money box (attachment below), you can set up a standing order with your bank using the following details (account number: 00101766, sort code: 60-01-73, account name: Canterbury Temple, reference: Project 2065), and you could consider remembering Project 2065 in your legacy – or you can do all three! Alternatively, if you wish to make a one-off donation to support Project 2065, visit our donation page.

Thank you.
