Since 2019, there have been considerations in the Network Apostolic History Association to purchase the archive building in Brockhagen, which has been rented until now. Talks with the owner of the building, the New Apostolic Church of West Germany, could be brought to a successful conclusion. In the month of June, the written decision on the purchase of the building was made – due to the current circumstances.
Of 145 members of the association, a total of 100 took part in the vote. The networkers spoke out with absolute majority for the purchase of the archive Brockhagen and the associated borrowing. For the submitted sales contract 88% voted (no 3%, abstention 9%), for the borrowing of 100,000 euro for the financing of the purchase 86% voted (no 2%, abstention 12%).
The Board of Directors is thus charged with handling the relevant formalities. The signing of the corresponding contracts with the financing bank and the building owner are planned for mid/end July. The network will then repay the loan taken out in full over the next ten years.
Many networkers and friends of the archive have announced or planned to support the payment of the installments with an additional monthly donation. We are pleased about this and grateful for all regular contributions, large or small, to be able to handle the purchase.
