Kingsmen Donate Land to Woodstock’s First Sikh Temple 

 

Kingsmen Group is excited to announce that they have donated land to The Working
Committee for the development of Woodstock’s very first Gurudwara Sahib, which will be
named the “Sri Guru Singh Sabha Woodstock.” Matthew Castelli, Founder and President of the
Kingsmen Group is committed to community infrastructure and development in the city of
Woodstock.

Kingsmen group is currently in their fourth phase of building their master-planned community,
Havelock Corners, in the heart of Woodstock. After a growing number of Punjabi families
moved to Woodstock in the last 4-5 years, Matthew Castelli wanted to honour this religion with
a place of worship. The temple is within the Master Planned Community of Havelock Corners,
providing ease of access for all our residents in our current phases and for our future phases. It
will begin development in the fifth phase and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
The temple is expected to host 75-100 people during the weekdays, and over 300 people on the
weekends. The building will be approximately 10,000 sq. ft. and will include the main prayer hall
that will host over 600 people, a langar (kitchen) hall which will be a community food hall, and
library that will be committed to teaching young children about their history and culture. The
temple will also feature an outside gazebo, where families can sit together, and children can
play in the safety of the temple grounds
