WINGS ELIM Camping and Convention Centre, Whitefield, Bangalore
ELIM Camping and Convention Centre situated at Whitefield, Bangalore, was graciously gifted to Stewards Association in India by Mr. S J W Chase and Mrs. Phyllis Violet Isabel Chase. This 8-acre property is located in Whitefield, one of the chief centres of the IT hub in Bangalore. As the buildings of the Camp Centre had grown dilapidated over the past years and was badly in need of proper maintenance, it could not be utilized according to its true potential in the past few years. Hence, we had been prayerfully considering a major facelift to the premises including the construction of a new building and to initiate renovation work of the old structures.
By the grace of God, we were able to remodel the Auditorium in a befitting manner enabling double seating capacity than that of the original. Immediately adjacent to the Auditorium, a Toilet Block, consisting of 6 rest rooms each for Gents and Ladies were constructed. We wholeheartedly acknowledge the financial contribution of dear Ms. Margo Heyburn D/o Mrs. & Mr. Chase towards the renovation of the new Auditorium.
In answer to our earnest prayers, in God’s opportune time, we could initiate the major renovation and construction work on our camp site in August 2020. In spite of Covid lockdowns and restrictions, we could carry out the construction and renovation work observing all Covid protocols as the Lord’s hand had been favourable to us.
