Free Family Fun Day a gift for community

Making a big come back, the Bundaberg Baptist Church will treat the local community to a Free Family Fun Day.  

Everything from rides, entertainment, parking and even the food will be free at a community event that aims to take the financial burden off local families.

Bundaberg Baptist Church Senior Pastor Richard Cathie said the church was eager to see the return of the fun day which had previously been held prior to Covid-19.

“We are really excited to see the hard work that church members have done to make sure families, such as those who can’t attend local shows, can come along to this Free Family Fun Day and enjoy their time together,” Richard said.

“This year we are trying to cater for more families with more rides and shorter lines.

“All the costs are covered by the church people – it’s our gift to the community.

“The idea behind it for us is that everything comes from the heart.”

This year will be the third time Bundaberg Baptist Church has organised the popular Free Family Fun Day.

Richard, who is also chairperson for the Bundaberg Ministers Association, said the combined churches in the Bundaberg Region strive to support the community.

“We saw at Bethlehem Live how together the combined churches can put on an event for the community,” he said.

“The churches were justifiably proud of the effort and result of Bethlehem Live.

“Although the Free Family Fun Day is organised by Bundaberg Baptist Church, we are doing this on behalf of the wider Christian community as a blessing for the whole community.”

The free activities from Fun Time Amusements including a mega slide, rock wall, pirate ship and mini jeeps.
