Volunteering & Working Bee

KCC loves volunteers! Your help greatly assists our friendly site staff team to care for and make improvements to the site of KCC's convention ministry! There are many ways to get involved:

 

  1. Bring a church group or a few friends and come and stay for a couple of days and assist using your many and varied talents (at times when our accommodation isn’t full). Give us a call or an email to chat to us about ideas or make arrangements with us.
  2. If you live locally, have a chat to us about possibilities – whether for projects from time to time, or weekly, fortnightly or monthly times
  3. Each year KCC has two working bees. Please RSVP at the bottom of this page to let us know you can make it. We ask everyone who can, to come and enjoy a weekend of fulfilling work with other Christian people in the mountains. There will be lots of projects to complete, and we need as many hands as possible, whether you're a trained landscaper, a beginner painter, a willing gardener, a lifelong engineer, or just happy to help where you can. If you have any tools or equipment please bring these along.

What To Bring

  


 

KCC Bushland Carers

Our KCC Bushland Carers group was launched at the Working Bee in November 2015. Our Working Bees usually include bush regeneration activities, along with other projects.

 

Help us care for the beautiful creation that we’ve been given to look after on our property in Katoomba. Katoomba Christian Convention looks across to the world famous Three Sisters and sits next door to the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. We have beautiful ridge top bushland and a federally significant hanging swamp.

 

Learn how to use bush regeneration techniques to control threatening weeds.

 

Demonstrate to our visitor and the local community that we value and want to protect these environmental values.

 

Come and lend some time to helping us onsite by joining us if you’re interested.  Site staff and bush carer Jenny Schabel, a professional in natural resource management will be guiding bush regeneration activities.
