In late 2016 Life Vineyard Church (LVC), began chatting with Gateshead Council about becoming the managers of Marley Hill Community Centre and through an ‘Asset Transfer’ this became a reality in 2017. Since then we have hit the ground running doing some cosmetic as well as integral maintenance on the building.
The second site of LVC began in the Community Centre in September 2017 and now has 80 people that meet there every Sunday as well as others who join for other church activities through the week. Alongside that we’ve seen commercial business increase. We love that we can help facilitate the growth of this community and of local businesses. All the money that is made from bookings goes towards the maintenance and investment of the building.
