Plan for further expansion of the new Parish

The Bishop, the Right Rev’d  Danald Jute accompanied by the Archdeacon Andrew Pahah and Rev’d Joshua Jo also visited the site of the Priest quarter which is budgeted at RM120,000.00 and is still under construction.

Additional funding for the completion of the master plan for other facilities is required for its expansion project covering about five (5) acres of land which is now in the process of acquiring from the relevant authorities.

As this is a new resettlement scheme resulting from the Bengoh Dam project, the number of the Parish members are expected to rise significantly  as many of the residents at the present Dam site have not yet vacated fully but moving in stages to the present site.

The All Saints Church BRS is sited in a scenic location with a background of beautiful mountain ranges.

Praise be to God for this new church to bring the good news to the people of this new settlement and the surrounding villages.
