Fighting for their souls

A Gold Coast Pastor is this week attempting to attract more people to his church by holding a charity "fight night". A boxing ring will be set up inside the church and they hope to attract people who have previously thought churches were just for the "old or religious". The C3 Church, in Upper Coomera, was established three years ago and currently hosts about 350 people at its services. The report in today's Gold Coast Bulletin did not suggest how many were expected to go attend the fight night but it did say proceeds would go to local girl McKenzie Tamala who suffers from a rare cerebral palsy disorder. Parents wanting to attend the event may be pleased to learn that childcare will be available for children from five to 10 (their ages or the hours the care us available?). Only time will tell if this will help convince people that church is a hip and happening thing.
