The committee responsible for the upkeep of Mangrove Mountain Union Church has worked very hard over the past eighteen months to maintain and improve the lovely “little white church on the hill”.
During 2017, two major projects have been undertaken on the property:

Other projects, though not as large, were also undertaken during 2017. These tasks have ensured that the church buildings are safe, as well as inviting, for everyone who uses the premises.
A survey was carried out at the beginning of the year to determine the safety of the buildings. It was discovered that the piers under the church building required re-packing. This work was carried out by authorised builders. At the same time, new ant caps were added to the piers.
The front steps, which had been a cause for concern for some time received the tender loving care that they needed. The foundations were relaid and new, improved step supports were put in place.
The church received a considerable number of plants from Andreasens Green for the Mother’s Day Picnic and also to sell during the Harvest Festival Central Coast. The MMUC Committee obtained some of these plants for the back of the hall. These will help the area at the back of the hall to look so much nicer for outdoor weddings and other events held in the beautiful church surrounds.
Upon inspection, it was discovered that quite a few old she-oaks had become diseased and needed to be removed. The committee engaged a local firm, TreeCorp to cut these trees down and also to remove a very large angophora branch overhanging the church hall. The crew did an amazing job. The trees will be replaced by Australian natives in the near future. The mulch resulting from the job will come in very handy!
