A summary of details from a London Mennonite Centre Newsletter which was sent out in January of 2011. If you would like the PDF copy of it, just contact me and I will e-mail it to you. I can't post it easily here -not even the text only - I tried.
Letter is from - Jeremy Thompson, Chair of the London Mennonite Trust
Sale of the LMC was completed in December of 2010 for a sum of £3,250,000. The agreement is for up to nine months until completion.
Bridge Builders (whom I work for), as a product of the London Mennonite Centre's ministry, is going to be granted a one time gift of £105,000 as it works toward becoming an independent Charity. This should cover expenses incurred in the first two years of operation. London Mennonite Trustees are still hoping for a possible co-location with Bridge Builders, dependent on an adequate future location, for both parties.
LMC Trustees would like to have a portion of the completed sale for use as an investment to bring in steady income for the future Centre. They now have under £2,000,000 to work with, including renovation, for use to purchase a new Centre.
Trustees are also in the process of interviewing a possible North American candidate to become the future Director of the Centre. This is an on-going process and will likely take up to a year from any accepted offers before the Director will arrive.
On a lighter and happier note, a longtime staff member of the Centre was married in November of 2010.
