Earlier this year Eternity Christian Church hosted its first free community event. The initiative birthed from the church’s heart to serve the community or Mirrabooka and a desire to bless and lavish the local families. Available on the day was free food (sausage sizzle and burgers) and drinks, coffee and cake, free raffle prizes, fresh fruit and vegetables, give away food hampers and toiletry bags, plus entertainment for the kids including bouncy castle, face painting and craft. |
Throughout the day we had over 50 visitors with 22 indicating they wished to receive our regular church newsletter.
As a result of the amazing work and generosity of our people we were able to provide 30 food hampers and 30 toiletry bags to people in the local community. In addition we gave away over 200 burgers and sausage sizzles and 50 bags of fruit and vegetables. Another important part of the day was to engage the local community in providing feedback on what they would like to see in future community days. Visitors’ feedback was very positive with 60% suggesting they would like to see events like this as a regular part of the community calendar.
This event was made possible in collaboration with local partners like Uniting Care West Food Rescue who kindly donated fresh fruits and vegetables; Torres Butcher who provided the church with sausages and patties; and a large number of volunteers from within the Eternity family.
