The Asset Strategy Program 2018-2023
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.
