Supporting Local Events in our Region

We support a range of events in our city to help build the community. YWAM Townsville is proud to support the following events on an annual basis.

ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day is nationally recognised as a day to pay respect and to acknowledge those Australian and New Zealand service men and women who have lost their lives in war over the past 100 years. We provide volunteers to assist veterans out of vehicles during the parade and man water stations for the crowds.

Pioneers Luncheon

The Pioneers Luncheon is a free event for thousands of local seniors. The event includes lunch, entertainment, and a lifestyle expo. The event is aimed at valuing and honouring seniors in our community. We provide volunteers every year to serve lunch, help with set up and mix and mingle with the guests.

Stable on the Strand

For five days before Christmas, Townsville’s major ocean-front area, Strand Park, is transformed into the historic town of Bethlehem. Here attendees can interact with Roman soldiers, traditional craftspeople, livestock, shepherds and sheep, wise men and their camels and, of course, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. YWAM Townsville actively supports the event by providing volunteers and helping to run youth activities.
