To celebrate Family Week, Toowoomba City Church (TCC) took their Sunday morning service to the playground in Queen’s Park to host a morning of family fun and all-you-can-eat pancakes.
“We estimate that we made around 1200 pancakes,” said TCC member Josh Townsend. “Despite the early morning drizzle and fog, the sun came out and so did lots of people.”
Families enjoyed sitting around tables under the trees, playing cricket and volleyball, a free jumping castle, face painting, and live music provided by YWAM Toowoomba.
“We just wanted to put something on for families to come and spend time together, have heaps of fun and celebrate Family Week,” said Josh.
“And who doesn’t love all-you-can-eat pancakes!”
Members of the church not only enjoyed the relaxed morning together, but also mingled with the families that had come out for the special occasion.
“It was important for us to get out to where the people are, and serve and love them,” said Josh.
“Family Week is such a great opportunity for churches to step out into the community and express the love of Jesus and the importance of families.”
Josh said he hoped the Pancakes in the Park would become a regular event and is looking forward to more opportunities for the church to serve the local community.
