Three church groups to share $25m hub
Pilot project is aimed at addressing shortage of space for religious use
A $25 million church hub where worshippers from three Christian denominations - Lutherans, Presbyterians and Methodists - will be under one roof, is under way in a pilot project aimed at easing the space crunch faced by churches here.
The new five-storey building at 2 Tah Ching Road, which will sit on land currently leased by the Lutheran Church's Jurong Christian Church, will be partly rented out to the Providence Presbyterian Church and Jurong Tamil Methodist Church for 30 years.
There are about 50 years left on the land lease.
Work on the approximately 60,000 sq ft hub is expected to start early next year and be completed by end-2016.
