Ongoing property maintenance is constantly required at the Mission Block in Alice Springs and the church and store at the Hermannsburg Historic Precinct and also at 20 churches and other buildings scattered throughout central Australia. This is a huge task that FRM shares with the local congregations, communities and traditional owners, who actually own most of the land and property. FRM volunteers assist these local congregations to maintain the structures they feel they need to help proclaim the gospel in their local area and beyond. Each year, dozens of people from congregations all over Australia, give their time, money and labour to help maintain these physical structures. Although the conditions in which they work are often challenging and extreme, the relationships they build with the local community more than make up for it.
