Entirely New Scientology Church of Inglewood, California

On 5 November, an entirely new Church of Scientology was opened in Inglewood, California.  The first of its kind, the facility has two separate buildings – a main Church building, and a magnificent community center.

The Community Center on Vermont Avenue is housed in an historic art deco landmark that dates from the early 1930s and which the Church has meticulously restored. It features a 380-seat event hall, the L. Ron Hubbard Community Auditorium, designed for community events and as a meeting ground for residents of all denominations. In that respect, it is a venue dedicated to community-wide initiatives in the spirit of the Founder’s vision of all church denominations working together to achieve the common dream of all religions. The Center further features numerous classrooms and seminar facilities for a full range of civic programs, including a complete literacy and tutoring center.

Following are photos of the new buildings.   You can contact the center here to arrange a tour.

Marking the significance of this day, Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center and ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, officiated at the ceremony. In pointing to what this day represents he said: “This new Church of Scientology is quite literally imbued with the contributions and global spirit of Scientologists from more than a hundred nations. In that respect, it reflects the greater shape of Scientology—both body and soul. Moreover, it reflects the attributes of greatness all religions traditionally sought to inspire, including decency, nobility, compassion and charity.  And that’s also the spirit in which we provide our new Community Center, open for use by one and all, for the benefit of all its residents.”
