Volunteers return to help build church

Getting the hands dirty: The Mobile Mission Maintenance Australia that was in Cobram for the past two weeks have been hard at work.

Cobram’s Riverside Church is one step closer to completion thanks to a team of visiting volunteers.

The group of workers from the organisation Mobile Mission Maintenance Australia has been in Cobram for the past two weeks giving assistance to the construction to the church.

MMM is a mission organisation operating throughout Australia and supports Christian ministries by providing building, maintenance and other practical services.

It isn’t the first time the organisation has been on this site, as it was originally here in August of 2013.

MMM volunteer Paul Barnham said they had enjoyed their time in Cobram much more in 2017.

‘‘I can still remember how cold it was in August in Cobram,’’ he said.

‘‘Our volunteers come from right across the country and everyone here in Cobram is from various parts of NSW — I think the one that has the furthest to travel comes from up around Newcastle.

‘‘We all come from various backgrounds of work before retiring so it is a great way for us all to keep busy.’’

The group finished its time in Cobram on Friday and will now go somewhere else in the country that requires its help.
