The lack of space to accommodate the various activities of the different auxiliaries of the Hendala Baptist Church namely the Sunday School, Youth Fellowship, Women’s League and Men’s Fellowship and other social activities spurned the hearts and minds of the members who went down on their knees and prayerfully set about drawing plans for a three storied building adjacent to the present church and taking away with it the small church which stood for almost 120 years. The dedicated effort of the Hendala Baptist Church saw fruit in July 2006. It was named “Dev Asiri Sevana” meaning “God's blessed shelter” to be used in various ways to bring glory to God. Dev Asiri Sevana is managed by a committee elected at the annual general meeting of the Hendala Baptist Church with incumbent pastor as its patron in accordance with the constitution approved by the Sri Lanka Baptist Sangamaya.
