Com­mu­nity served

Fremantle Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

OA­SIS Church Perth has spent two weeks giv­ing back to Cock­burn com­mu­nity.

The church took part in Serve Week, run­ning sev­eral projects in­clud­ing a back­yard makeover for an Atwell res­i­dent, host­ing morn­ing tea for pri­mary school staff and host­ing an af­ter­noon tea for res­i­dents of Re­gent Gar­dens nurs­ing home.

Oa­sis Church rep­re­sen­ta­tive Re­becca Thomas said it was an ab­so­lute joy to give back to Cock­burn com­mu­nity groups and res­i­dents with no agenda. This was the first year Oa­sis Church has taken part in Serve Week.

“Be­fore the event ev­ery­one came to­gether to de­cide on the com­mu­nity projects they wanted to run,” Ms Thomas said.

“Our church has many fam­i­lies and a rather strong con­nec­tion to Atwell Col­lege be­cause the group started out there, so giv­ing back to them seemed an ob­vi­ous choice.”
