The primary mission of Grace Abundant Filipino Community Church (GAFCC) is to cater for the spiritual needs of the Filipino community in Ireland.
The primary objective of GAFCC is therefore to provide for a place where people can find a “home away from home”, where they are always welcomed, where they can find comfort and acceptance, and where they can encounter God and have their lives touched and transformed for the better.
With that mission in mind, GAFCC has identified a building and a location in the Western suburb of Blanchardstown in Dublin, near the cluster of where many Filipinos are living and working. It is a very accessible location right on the Main Street, in the middle of the shopping district.
The vision is to provide a Community Centre to serve the Filipino community, where they can find rest and refreshments, and where community activities can be held.
Over two-thirds of the project costs had already been raised. GAFCC is now looking to raise the final one-third of the project cost, amounting to EUR 550,000 (PHP 30 million).
We are now appealing to the world-wide family of Filipino brothers and sisters in Christ to assist us in this fundraising effort. With over 100 million Filipino Christians estimated worldwide, the fundraising target is not unsurmountable.
In terms of corporate governance, Grace Abundant Filipino Community Church (GAFCC) is formally registered with the Companies Registration Office in the Republic of Ireland (Registration Number 626794), is audit compliant and certified fully tax compliant, as well as in full compliance of all other legal requirements under Irish legislation. The church is also in the process of applying for Charity status with the Charities Regulator under the Charities Act 2009, to be formally recognised as a Religious and Charitable Organisation.
