Every Mother's day we have a Mother's Day Banquet to honour mothers in our community. The event is held on the Saturday night before Mother's Day. This has been an awesome outreach into our community to honour mother's who have had a tough year; are single mothers; have either themselves been sick or their children. We honour them with a large basket of goodies - and at least 20 ladies receive these baskets, as well as smaller gifts. Every lady leaves this banquet feeling appreciated and special.
This event is sponsored by the businesses in our church and community. Each year we have had highlighted one lady to honour in a special way. We have brought their daughters over from the east who they haven't seen for years; we have provided accommodation for a family who have had cancer. Around 180-200 ladies attend this event each year.
