So, my spies tell me that the East Pennines A$$emb£y hall is being sold and all proceeds going to Jobo HQ. There's a surprise.....NOT!
I understand there are other properties too. Can someone verify this as genuine?
Awake (g87 9/8 p. 25-26) after mentioning, what we in the UK called Hellaby stated...
In former years, the Witnesses used to rent theaters and auditoriums for these larger gatherings, called circuit assemblies. (A circuit is composed of some 20 congregations.) Now such facilities are no longer available in many areas. Therefore, a movement got under way in the United States some 20 years ago to acquire properties that could be converted into Assembly Halls. The fact that more and more are being inaugurated all over the world is a sign of the increase that Jehovah’s Witnesses are experiencing.
Oh, well. that's a load of bunkum then!
