The Asset Strategy Program 2016-17
The Asset Strategy Program is a professionally led investigation to rationalise the use of church property within a Boroondara group of Uniting Churches. The aim is to generate more revenue from properties, by sharing and outsourcing the administration of all buildings to a professional manager. The revenue will be pooled and used to refurbish properties on a needs basis. Initially some of this church property will be sold to raise the capital to start the process.
The report from the facilitator to the congregations was received in December 2016 and recommends a method for raising the capital. The individual churches will be required to accept the plan or opt out following discussions about future governance and ministry.
