Hi Pastors

I thought it would be good to give you an update of the CityServe projects for 2015. We have confirmed our first outing for April18th at the Albion Park Rail sporting fields. We will be kicking the day off from 8am and should be finished by 3pm.

1)      PROPOSED activities include:

  • Seating at skatepark
  • Replace seating in southern grandstand and paint metal frame
  • Paint inside of the neighbourhood centre
  • Repair gutting around neighbourhood centre
  • Herb and vegetable gardens
  • Paint watertank
  • General garden makeover / mulching
  • Skirt up boundary trees
  • Repaint graffiti on skatepark (check with Josh / Isy – Youth Services)
  • Edge cricket pitch
  • Paint treated pine barriers


The next CityServe outing will then be 27th June TBA. These two events are designed to prepare us for the month of October were we will be doing multiple projects across our City and we envisage we will be contacting the Churches in the month of June to suggest some opportunities for Churches to take on particular projects. In October we will be committing to projects for each weekend except for the Long weekend in October.
