2016 Changes – In The Know!

Some things are changing around here in 2016 and we want to let you know all about them!

GC 2016 dates

Cafe events are moving to Wednesday nights. Our wonderful friends at Crave Cafe are opening on Saturday nights now, so we get to move to Wednesdays! The events will be the same, just a little later (7:30pm – 9:30pm). We are super excited for this, it means that you can bring your small/home group along as a social event and the party animals among us still have their Saturday nights!

We need more musicians! If you play an instrument and/or sing, we want to here from you! We love showcasing new talent, and we love being blessed by those in our community. Sets are for the first half hour of the event, super chill and a great place to cut your teeth as a performer. Get in touch with Eleanor (admin@aym.org.nz) if you would like to know more!

We are always looking for more people to help us out with our cafe events (hosting, baking, photography, sound/AV, set up). We are a COLLECTIVE – all of us make up the community so we would love to have anyone who wants to be involved, involved! If you have a passion/gift/calling we are sure there is a place for you here. Email the address above for more info!
