Combined Christian Community... Willunga
FREE activities & games at Willunga Almond Blossom Festivals…
Local Willunga and district churches and Christian community work
together as one to provide an exciting array of FREE fun Activities, Games and
Entertainment catering for the whole family at the Willunga Almond Blossom
It's an exciting time when we, as a diverse group, work together
as one to embrace the broader community to provide friendship, enjoyment and an
opportunity to get together and talk about the important issues in the local
area, while having lots of fun.
The initiative was founded in 2006 and was developed with the
assistance and support of Fusion Australia. Fusion
continue to organise and man the centre games. The Combined
Christian Community man the activity shelters/tents and the tea and coffee.
The activities are provided
Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Sunday morning we enter a float in the festival parade.
Feedback from previous years has encouraged the organizers to
expand the involvement to include more churches, Christian organisations and
schools from the region.
A large area of the Willunga Recreation Park oval will be
transformed into a fun park. The last few years have seen an increasing number
of family members, both young and old, come together to participate in a diverse
range of activities including Games (Box hockey, footy toss, board games), Craft
activates ('kids carpentry', balloon sculpting, bubble blowing), Circus skills
(stilt walking, juggling), and good old community competitions like egg & spoon,
sack race, 3 legged race, tug of war and much more.
There are even activities for the 'Giants' of our community
including giant jigsaw, giant snakes and ladders and giant match puzzle.
"We are looking forward to this great community activity being a
catalyst for more combined Christian community activities throughout the year to
support the district's families and community", said Phil.
Thankyou to all who have helped since it's inception in 2006. The organizers are seeking expressions of interest from the
regional Christian community for activity helpers and also people who just want
to hang out and chat with the visitors to this exciting event. We look forward
to helpers of all ages and interests becoming involved as there is something for
everybody to do.
