As spring approaches, BBQs across Australia will fire up for a good cause when the Frontier Services Great Outback BBQ begins in September. Every Great Outback BBQ event will help Frontier Services by raising money to support its remote ministry and vital community services.
Echuca-Moama Uniting Church has already signed up to host a Great Outback BBQ on 21 September after its successful event last year.
“We held a Great Outback BBQ last year and it was a great day,” organiser Allan Butcher said. “We’ve decided to do the same again this year. Having a BBQ is one of the easiest things we can do to show our support.”
“We will set up a BBQ out the front of the Church with sausages, bread and onion. Our Church is right in the centre of town, so we expect plenty of foot traffic. By doing it this way we are also involving people from the wider community.”
Churches can join Echuca-Moama by hosting a Great Outback BBQ on the launch weekend of 31 August/1 September or anytime in September or later in spring or summer. Congregations that register will receive a BBQ Host Pack with recipes and fundraising ideas.
In the last two years, more than 180 Great Outback BBQs have raised $140,000 to ensure Frontier Services can provide a network of care and support in the most remote areas of Australia.
