C3 Church Howick
The Walls are growing 1 June 2019
Thank you everyone for your amazing support to get the C3 Lautoka church and community centre built.
The block walls are being built now and it's finally looking more like a building. Once the walls are built we will finish the last of the roof then put in all the doors and windows. The next step after that is to finish the plumbing, electrical and painting inside.
Your continued help is vital to get the next stages completed. We now need only $120K to finish. Every little bit helps. Please take the time and donate today.
The Roof Is On! 4 April 2019
The roof has now been installed onto the steel structure. We have just approved the next step to build the concrete block walls.
So close to finishing now. Once the block walls are built we next work to complete the roof and veranda. After that just the doors and windows then the inside finishing.
We need another $150,000 to complete this project.
Please donate now as every little bit helps.
Sunset in Fiji 14 August 2018
Nothing more beautiful than a sunset in Fiji. Especially when it highlights the amazing steel structure that will support our new building.

Structural Steel Beams Are Now Installed 6 August 2018
The structure is now in place. Amazing the height of these beams. The short side is over 4 m high while the tall side is over 6 m high. Look at how small the construction team are compared to the beams.
The next step is to build the roof and walls. We still need more to make this a reality. Click on the "Donate Now" link and give a little. Remember - every little bit helps.

We Have Begun. 25 July 2018
Great News, We have raised enough to complete the next step. The building has started. We have now completed some additional foundation work and purchased the big steel beams for the auditorium structure. The beams have been cut to shape and welded together to create the building frames.
Now for the next step which is to erect the frames on site and build the roof. We already have over $15,000 towards this next step and only need a further $50,000 to see the roof completed. Each donation now matter how big or small is a step towards this. Many hands makes light work so please click on the "Donate Now" link to make a difference.
The Next Step 16 May 2018
The Lovu community is subject to major flooding several times a year and the C3 Ministry Station serves as a refuge centre. It provides pivotal support for displaced families, delivering emergency shelter, supplies, comfort and hope.
The C3 Lautoka church, which also meets in the C3 Ministry Station, has thrived. Both the church, and the aid and development work are expanding at such a rate, that the current C3 Ministry Station has reached capacity.
Work on a new facility outside the flood prone area is underway. Council approvals have been given, the foundations have been laid and we are ready to begin building!
We would love your contribution to help continue to improve the lifestyle of this community and to strengthen their resilience to future disasters. Every donation, no matter how small or big, will have equal impact on achieving this dream and transform lives for generations to come. Please partner with us to help make this happen.
