The Basement - Adelaide Congress Hall
This year Adelaide Congress Hall launched its refurbished youth drop-in centre The Basement.
The Basement is designed as a safe place for young people to come, to be loved and cared for. It is the site for Adelaide Congress Hall’s youth and young adults ministry and community outreach programmes.
‘We love this city’ is the motto of Adelaide Congress Hall and the church community is committed to using the space to reach out to the city of Adelaide. On Saturday nights youth in the community gather at The Basement to connect with other young people, play games, spend some quiet time or watch TV.
The refurbished basement is the site for a range of activities and services aimed at making a practical and meaningful difference to the lives of others. It allows the church to connect with local primary and high school students, and as a result many students have started to attend church activities.
As an example of the holistic support The Salvation Army offers, activities taking place provide an opportunity for individuals to find spiritual or Christian guidance and develop their faith.
