Killina Presentation Resource Centre

A space for our community to gather, socialise, work, play, learn and make new friends

The people of Killina, Rahan and the much wider community have been crying out for a central hub, where meetings can be held, friends and neighbours can meet for a coffee, activities for all ages can be arranged and above all, where people can connect.

With the poignant closure of the Presentation Sisters Convent in Killina, a beautiful building of great importance to locals, lay empty and the idea of repurposing it for community use took hold. A group of local parishioners came up with the idea of setting up ‘Killina Presentation Resource Centre’ and a steering committee was established. The committee put forward a detailed strategic plan to the Presentation Sisters, proposing to develop a resource centre to provide high quality facilities and a range of activities accessible to all sectors of the community.

The application was successful and a historic agreement was reached for the local community to lease the impressive building and extensive grounds.

Our plans for the venue include facilities such as meeting rooms, work hubs, social services, arts and entertainment, training and education, therapy, exercise and relaxation, waking services, a heritage museum and a community shop and café.
