Community Weekend a huge success

27 Nov 2009

Community Weekend a huge success Image

The Docklands Community weekend, hosted by City on a Hill (previously Docklands Church) was a huge winner for all involved.

Kicking off Friday morning with a business breakfast at Sumac, leading economist Ian Harper (Access Economics) shared his thoughts on the GFC.

In the evening it was time to put the dancing shoes on for the Docklands Community Ball.  A great number turned out on a very nice Docklands night for some fun and very funky tunes by Soul Beats.  The Atlantic Group which provided the catering did an amazing job.  The evening raised close to $3000 for Many Rooms (an initiative of City on a Hill seeking to care for Melbourne’s homeless).

Saturday morning in sweltering heat, a brave army turned up for the Docklands Fun Run (clearly an oxy-moron).  The brave competitors battled it out and celebrated with a well-earned community breakfast.  

Sunday was an absolute winner.  City on a Hill hosted two main services at James Squire where Pastor Guy talked about building a healthy and vibrant community.  In between the two services, the Waterfront City piazza was filled with loads of people enjoying free activities, market stalls, jumping castles, giveaways.  DJs and the Morin’s were joined by local acts Preston Perche and Jess Lee.

Guy Mason, from City on a Hill said: ‘”It was a fantastic weekend that we were excited to be part of.  We want to love and bless this community as Christ has blessed us.  We look forward to hosting the event in 2010.”
