Windmill Christian Centre

The purpose

The advancement of the Christian faith by the provision of holiday and conference facilities, in a suitable Christian atmosphere, primarily for young people in order that they may have daily bible study with particular emphasis on evangelism, bible teaching and training for leadership, and by the provision of appropriate sporting and recreation facilities to encourage initiate, learn new skills, develop interpersonal relationships and through all this develop Christian character and become a good Christian influence within society. 

We will connect with the local community by providing facilities for other Christian charitable bodies to engage in relation to work based skills and the resulting therapeutic advantages.

The provision

Accommodation for Summer Camps, Youth weekends, Church outings and conferences has been an increasing problem in recent years. The Berea Trust Ltd. was formed to purchase a building to help resolve these accommodation problems. God answered our prayers in a remarkable way enabling such a building to be provided.

Amy

I came to serve at the centre in May 2014. I moved here from the foot of the Ochil hills near Stirling. I was part of Alva Baptist church while I lived there. It is so exciting to be part of God’s work here!

                                                                    My favourite hobby is riding my 600cc motorbikes. I have been involved with CMA (Christian Motorcyclists Association) since 2009, taking the Gospel message to bikers where they gather. I am also a keen horse rider having competed showjumping and cross country for years.
