Wanna be a part

of building a

playground?

We have a big property... and some big dreams for all that could happen here! That being said, we can't do everything all at once. So for 2020, we will focus on two main areas:

1 - The White House (café + 1st floor)

2- Mandatory infrastructure projects

1 - The White House

CAFÉ + 1ST FLOOR

We chose the White House as the starting point for the building of our Playground. Its central location and wide variety of rooms offer us an exciting canvas for creating an inspiring work and learning environment.

For this year, we will be focusing on 3 areas:

main café space

café's kitchen

classroom & creative studio on 1st floor 

Below, you can read a more detailed overview for each area but if you are looking for the quick facts and how you can contribute, here's what you need to know.

SEWAGE CONNECTION & VENTILATION

SEWAGE CONNECTION:

After many years of having our own sewage system, it is now required of us to connect our system to the municipality's sewage system. This has been a very long back and forth process with the municipality for the last 10 years, and now the time has come for the work to get started.

 

The digging has begun at the beginning April and will continue until June. Then we will have until the end of September to finish the connections to our different buildings. The cost for this project is 1 400 000 kr 1 150 000 kr for the connection fee and 250 000 kr for our in-house connections. 

RADON GAS VENTILATION - TALLÅSEN

One of our buildings here at Restenäs is called Tallåsen, and it serves as home to many of our staff. After some recent inspections by the health & environmental authorities of the municipality, it was confirmed that the level of radon gas is above the recommended limits and therefore we will need to install a new ventilation system in each apartment. 

 

The estimated costs for this project are around 600 000 kr and we are aiming to complete this project before the end of 2020.

VENTILATION - COMMUNITY KITCHEN

Our kitchen has been a big blessing for our community throughout the years, providing food and a sense of togetherness to the all and many who have passed through Restenäs during the last 40 years. So after all these years, the kitchen is now in need of an upgraded ventilation system, as the current one cannot be properly cleaned by the chimney sweepers, which poses risks for fire. The estimated costs for this project are around 300 000 kr and we are also aiming to complete this project before the end of 2020.

WOULD YOU STAND WITH US?

God has blessed us with a property with so much potential. As we've gone through many ups and downs seasons at Restenäs since the 1980's, we are now standing at the beginning of a new and exciting season. And with that, we want to say that we cannot build towards the future on our own; we need help. We need people who want to believe with us for the future of Restenäs and all that God wants to do in and through this place!

As we look at the mandatory projects ahead of us for this year, it is clear that we are looking at  some big numbers... which is requiring each one of us to be stretched in our faith, trusting that God can make a way for the necessary funds to come in at the right time. Our aim is to gather 1 000 000 kr.

 

So would you join us on this faith journey, standing with us in prayer to see this amount come in? And if you would like to give toward this project, please do so by following the link below. Any amount, however big or small, will help us move closer towards our goal! Thank you!
