 THE CHAMPIONS CENTRE

DOWNTOWN GULU

THE CHAMPIONS CENTRE

 

THE COMMUNITY HUB

The local government has allowed us to develop 16 acres in the heart of Gulu, Uganda.

The major goal of building the Champions Centre is to build a space that becomes the community HUB of Gulu. When people begin to spend their time in an environment that is filled with the love of Jesus Christ, we believe that it is only a matter of time until they are positively impacted.

It will create a space where the churches of the region can come together to love their community by running sports leagues, open-air concerts, training seminars, medical/dental outreaches, etc. 

We will never start a church at the Champions Centre. We aim to fill the seats of the churches in Gulu.

 

PHASE 1 THE CHILDREN'S PARK 

The children's park will be the first 2 acres developed on the Champions Centre property.

Currently, there is no safe public playground that kids can play for free. We want to change that!

The Children's Park will be an amazing space for parents to spend time with their children. We believe in the power of play!

THE KIDS STAGE

The Kids Stage is central to the entire Children’s Park. During the day, the stage will be used for kids programs. Local churches will lead the kids in high energy worship music and bible teaching.

In the evening, this space will double as a meeting place for youth and young adults. Christian movies, gospel performances and cultural nights will be held here.

The Kids Stage will have a  600 person capacity.

MULTIPURPOSE BUIDLING

The multipurpose building is a 4,400 sq. ft. building that will house the cafe and the park office. 

A healthy community is built on healthy families. Our aim is to create an atmosphere where children and parents can create memories together.

With hundreds of people using the Children's Park each day, the cafe will be a welcome addition that help us offset ongoing overhead costs. 

The balcony will provide an area for people to sit and enjoy the view of the park.

THE PLAYGROUNDS

These two playgrounds (shipped from the USA) will be free to the public.

The blue playground will be one of Uganda's largest. The green playground will be for the smaller children.

THE SWING SETS

Two large swing sets from the USA. 

Throughout the playground we have 6 inches of sand beneath all the play equipment to protect the kids. And what child doesn't love a sandbox.

THE CLIMBING WALL

We all know children love to climb and explore. This section of the Children’s Park will add adventure in a safe environment. 

A climbing wall, tunnel, hill to run up and down, balancing logs and lots of sand, just in case anyone falls.

THE BABY AREA

The Baby Area will be a place for kids 3 and under. A water-table, sand-table, play-table, large chalkboard and musical pipes will give little ones the opportunity to learn and play. 

Seating and mats will be available for parents to sit and relax. 

The area will be covered by shade sails to keep the babies out of the hot African sun.

THE VOLLEYBALL COURT

Most of the children in Gulu don't have running shoes so we are building a beach volleyball court. 

Weekly volleyball clinics and children’s leagues will be enjoyed by hundreds of kids. 

During the evenings, we will open up the sports courts for adults. With solar lighting, they will be able to play well into the evening.

THE FAMILY PICNIC AREA

We believe the Children’s Park will be used to strengthen families. 

The picnic area will allow families to do life in a fun and social environment. They can bring food from home or purchase it at the cafe. 

The Children’s Park will be a major social HUB for the city.
