Church to raise RM100m for centre (Click for Star Article)

PETALING JAYA: The Calvary Church of Kuala Lumpur is holding a funfair to raise funds for its RM100mil convention centre. 

For a start, Calvary Carnival ’06 on Sept 16 at the Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort is targeted at raising RM500,000. 

The Calvary Convention Centre, to be located beside the resort, is expected to cost RM100mil, excluding land cost of RM35mil.  

Jim Guneratnam, administrative executive of Project Calvary Convention Centre technical committee, said the land had been paid for in full. 

“We will look at how we will furnish it when the building is completed three years after earthworks begin,” he said, adding that earthworks were expected to begin before the year was over. 

When completed, the six-storey multiplex will have total built-up of about 600,000sq ft.  

The focal point of the centre will be an auditorium that seats 5,000, facilities for staging musical productions complete with orchestra pit and backstage facilities that include dressing rooms, lounge, prayer hall and storage space. 

Other components of the complex include educational facilities comprising lecture halls, childcare nursery, and libraries for adults and children. 

Other features of the project are a banquet hall, a multi-purpose community and recreational hall, a cafeteria and bookshop, hostel and guest apartments. It will also have a three-level car park.  

Guneratnam said the convention centre would be dedicated to holistic activities. 

“It will have the facilities to host international, regional and national conventions, banquets, seminars and creative performing arts. At the same time, it is devoted to the educational, vocational and spiritual development of this country’s young generation,” he added. 

Guneratnam said although the centre would be church property, it was meant for the community at large.  

“Other churches can use these facilities. Musicals and other wholesome activities can be held there,” he said. 

This is the second major fund raiser for the project. The first was a dinner-cum-musical that raised RM1mil in 2004. 

A crowd of about 8,000 is expected at the fun fair that would have 60 stalls offering food and beverages, games and knick-knacks. 

The fair, made possible with the help of about 2,500 volunteers, is open to everyone. For more information, call 03-7728 2694/8876 or visit www.calvary.org.my

  1. Calvary Convention Centre is funded by donations and people’s monies through fund raising. Yet it is going to belong to the church and it is most likely to generate a lot of income for the church.

    Something is very wrong here. Using people’s monies to build their property which is then going to be used to make money.

    Sounds like daylight robbery.

  2. Tuhan mengajar kesederhanaan.
    100 juta, banyak yang boleh digunakan utk kerajaan Tuhan selain membina bangunan gereja yang mewah..

  3. rumah untuk kita tinggal kita buat mewah ini kan untuk kemuliaan Tuhan jadi apa salahnya macam raja saloma membuat rumah Tuhan. semua rezeki datang dari Tuhan apa salahnya kita kembalikan untuk kemuliaanya.
