About

A chance for Church Hill youth to develop woodworking skills, build self esteem, and improve their lifestyles at home and in the workplace.

Nehemiah’s Workshop provides a gathering place for youth and adults to learn about various aspects of domestic repairs, tool skills and woodworking taught and mentored by volunteers. The workshop is equipped with primary woodworking tools, workshop supplies, hardware, workbenches and storage. Workshop sessions teach participants how to conduct basic home repairs, use common household hand tools, build small projects and other similar life skills.

Nehemiah’s Workshop is named after the Old Testament prophet Nehemiah. He was responsible for leading the people to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem which had been broken down . The rebuilding effort brought safety and security to the people of Jerusalem. However, of greater significance was the rebuilding of faith in God as a result of the momentous project. After many years of faithlessness, there was a religious revival as the people promised to serve God faithfully. Hopefully, Nehemiah’s Workshop will not only help the community maintain and rebuild their homes, but bring about similar reaffirmations of faith in Jesus Christ.
