Walk for Play Zone

Northside Mackay Uniting is an unusual church. We were created as a visionary act, bringing several smaller congregations together onto a large property, and a beautiful worship centre was built. However funds ran out and only a fraction of the planned halls were built, and of course there were no funds for any ongoing development.

Despite the resulting limitations, we are a church showing all the signs of trying to grow. A few years ago we had 2 young children. Now we have more like 40, and often about 20 at Sunday worship. We had 60, and now we regularly see over 100 at Sunday worship.

But we have 2 swings, and that just doesn’t do the job for the children. So we are extending our fenced area to create a play zone for the children. The fence we can afford. The playzone needs to be funded.

So … for our first effort, Rev Wayne McHugh is leading any willing souls on a walk around Mackay. More specifically, a walk from the Northside centre in Andergrove to Iona West in West Mackay, to Armitage in South Mackay, to St Paul’s in Mackay City, and then back to Northside – 30km total, on Saturday 27 March 2021.

We’re inviting anyone from all the Mackay Uniting Churches to join the walk for all or part of the trip, to fundraise for their own congregation or our project – it will be good to work together.
