Brisbane is to be the host city for the 2032 Summer Olympic Games.
This means some big things in the years ahead for Brisbane and for Church@TheGabba.
A major feature of this commitment to hold the world's greatest sporting event, has been the announcement that the Gabba sporting stadium, just across the road from Church @TheGabba, would become the site of the major stadium for the Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies and for the athletics competition.
So C@G is positioned right in the epicentre of a lot of activity leading up to, and including, the 2032 Olympics. These are going to be challenging times for us and the local community, and there are many unanswered questions relating to the proposed demolition of the existing stadium and the building of the new Olympic Stadium. One of the biggest community concerns centres around the fate of the East Brisbane State School (that we work in close partnership with in the community).
However, along with the challenges also come some unique opportunities for Church@TheGabba to serve our community and the world! Indeed....the world is coming to us! This will, undoubtedly, provide many incredible opportunities and, even though it is only very early days, we are looking ahead with prayerful enthusiasm to what opportunities the Lord is going to bring our way.
