Currently, we are in the development stages of what will be The Antioch Community Centre and Indoor skate park. The property and building that housed the Warman Gospel Church is slowly being transformed into a multi-faceted hub that will uniquely serve the community at large.
The Church building will serve 3 functions.
Antioch will be common ground – A place for people to congregate and collaborate.
Where civilians, businesses, churches and municipalities work shoulder to shoulder to make a difference in the Valley Area.
This is a one of a kind project – nothing of this nature exists in Saskatchewan
We have done preliminary designs and have begun fundraising for a 10,000 SQ FT secondary facility that be placed behind the current church building. It will house an indoor skate park and skateboard shop. The province is in desperate need of spaces like this and The Antioch skate park will be the only one within a 300 KM radius.
Why Care about Extreme sports?
Skateboarding as well as these other “extreme” activities are profoundly enriching. Each requires enormous amount of dedication to master which covertly teaches life skills Such as perseverance, problem solving, camaraderie & delayed gratification that benefits young people far into their adult lives.
“There is no cheating in skateboarding” and does wonders for our well being.
Budget friendly and open year round, Antioch will be a home for skateboards, scooters and roller skates.
From beginner to advanced, from young to not so young, Antioch will be a positive space that promotes fun and recreation while organically growing community
Due to all that has transpired over the past few years our desired time-line has been delayed;
However, we feel called to push onward in order to serve our community and our youth.
The isolation we are all experiencing is resulting in a greater need for in-person interaction and spaces that facilitate community.
Developments are ongoing as we continue to raise awareness as well as the funds necessary for such an operation.
We hope to open in the fall 2021.
