From Small Beginnings, a New Life Centre Emerges

“Resurrection Life Centre”, is opening soon. This is the social and community services arm of Resurrection Church which aims to serve the needs of the community in Sai Kung and Clearwater Bay. When the ground floor space became available at Pak Sha Wan Centre where the church meets, the church decided to rent the space and create a community centre where people can find a safe place to gather and participate in community and social programmes. They will be launching several  programmes in the coming weeks with an official opening of the Centre in early January 2018.
Parents ‘n Tots group starts on Monday 11 September 2017. The programme will run from 9:30 – 11:30 am offering play, socialisation and organised activities. Helpers ‘n Tots starts on Thursday 14 September from 9:30 – 11:30am. Both parents and/or helpers can come to either Monday or Thursday, or both.
