Combined Christian Community...  Willunga & District

FREE activities & games at Willunga Almond Blossom Festivals…

Local Willunga and district churches and Christian community work together as one to provide an exciting array of FREE fun Activities, Games and Entertainment catering for the whole family at the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival. 

It's an exciting time when we, as a diverse group, work together as one to embrace the broader community to provide friendship, enjoyment and an opportunity to get together and talk about the important issues in the local area, while having lots of fun.

The initiative was founded in 2006 and was developed with the assistance and support of Fusion Australia.  Fusion continue to organise and man the centre games.  The Combined Christian Community man the activity shelters/tents and the tea and coffee.  The activities are provided both Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  Sunday morning we enter a float in the festival parade.

Feedback from previous years has encouraged the organizers to expand the involvement to include more churches, Christian organisations and schools from the region. 

A large area of the Willunga Recreation Park oval will be transformed into a fun park. The last few years have seen an increasing number of family members, both young and old, come together to participate in a diverse range of activities including Games (Box hockey, footy toss, board games), Craft activates ('kids carpentry', balloon sculpting, bubble blowing), Circus skills (stilt walking, juggling), and good old community competitions like egg & spoon, sack race, 3 legged race, tug of war and much more.

There are even activities for the 'Giants' of our community including giant jigsaw, giant snakes and ladders and giant match puzzle.

"We are looking forward to this great community activity being a catalyst for more combined Christian community activities throughout the year to support the district's families and community", said Phil.

Thankyou to all who have helped since it's inception in 2006. The organizers are seeking expressions of interest from the regional Christian community for activity helpers and also people who just want to hang out and chat with the visitors to this exciting event. We look forward to helpers of all ages and interests becoming involved as there is something for everybody to do.

Fusion Australia...

Noarlunga Farm, Coppermine Road, McLaren Vale.

Fusion Australia is a Christian Youth and Community Organisation that works with the Willunga Christian Community to run family activities at the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival.

In February 2007, Fusion launched its Connexions 4 Life and Work Project working in conjunction with southern schools including Willunga High School and local businesses.

Fusion manages the project from its southern centre at Noarlunga Farm, Coppermine Road, near McLaren Vale’s business centre. Facilities at the centre include a workshop for training in woodwork and a garage for training in auto-mechanics.

The aim is to provide training and resources that prepare young people to have a meaningful and productive work experience in a real life industry setting.

This programme is an initiative of the Government of South Australia delivered in partnership with the Southern Innovative Community Action Network.  Partial funding was been provided for 2007 with the aim that in 2008 the project would be be self-sustaining.

For more information about this project or any other aspect of Fusion’s work call us.

Fusion currently has a number of volunteer positions available including woodworking tradesperson, van driver and maintenance person, desktop publisher, equipment maintenance/handyperson, administration assistance and grounds-person.
