Life Church Purchases Former Nyanda School Site for Brisbane Christian College Expansion

14/10/2014

Life Church Brisbane has been named the successful purchaser of the recently-closed Nyanda State High School site. This will enable the church to expand one of their key ministries, Brisbane Christian College, as well as increase their services to our community.

“Life Church Brisbane and Brisbane Christian College have been a part of the fabric of the local community for over 30 years, and we are delighted to be able to expand our presence in community,” said Senior Pastor Geoff Blight.

“Our current site on Golda Avenue, Salisbury, has enabled us to well-serve our community over this time. This new site, with its purpose-built school buildings, ovals and educational design is ideally suited to create a secondary campus for Brisbane Christian College, as well as a new worship centre for Life Church Brisbane.

“Brisbane Christian College has enjoyed strong growth over recent years. We appreciate the closure of Nyanda State High School and its subsequent listing on the market has been of great interest and concern to the community.

“Life Church is delighted we can preserve this unique community asset as a school site, retain the existing parks and open space for our neighbours, whilst also expanding our community services.”

Life Church Brisbane and Brisbane Christian College collectively partner with families providing quality education from Pre-Prep to Year 12, Christian worship services, vital youth and young adult programs, mothers’ groups, food hampers and support for families in need, and holiday children’s programs.

Brisbane Christian College will begin classes on the site in the 2016 school year and will be taking enrolments.

Brisbane Christian College Considers Opportunity to Preserve Nyanda As a School

09/08/2014

Brisbane Christian College and Life Church Brisbane are considering their options and ability to purchase the recently-closed Nyanda High School site to expand their school and community services.

The school buildings, oval and educational design of Nyanda State High, which is being sold by the Queensland Government, would be well suited to create a second campus for the nearby Brisbane Christian College on Golda Avenue Salisbury.

“Life Church Brisbane and Brisbane Christian College have been a part of the fabric of the local community for over 30 years,” said Senior Pastor Geoff Blight.

“On our current site the College and Church, collectively partner with families, provide quality primary and secondary education, vital youth and young adult programs, food hampers for families in need, and Christian worship services and holiday children’s programs,.

“Brisbane Christian College has enjoyed strong growth over recent years, and the recent closure of Nyanda High School and it subsequent listing on the market has been of great interest and concern to the community.

“We recognise Nyanda High School site is a unique community asset and we are very keen to explore if we would be able to extend our school and church onto the nearby site, which would preserve it as a school site and protect the highly-valued open space for the neighbours.

“We are aware that we will most likely be competing with developers who have much deeper pockets than ours, however we are committed to investigate if we may be able to extend our service of the community to include this site.

“We’re also acutely aware that we could be in a position to preserve the area as a school site, while expanding our community services, which is why we are investigating our ability to lodge an expression of interest for the site.”

Senior Pastor Blight said members of the school and church community had shown interest in purchasing the site, and he had informed their churchgoers, staff and school parents that they were considering lodging an expression of interest.
