In about a week, our Whanganui whānau will have a new caffeine scene at The Common Ground Pop-up, a new shipping container cafe at 45 Ridgway Street. Alongside providing great coffee and a cool atmosphere, the cafe exists to provide training and employment opportunities to local rangatahi (youth), and profits go back into the local community.
The cafe is being established by Urban Vision, and is led by Rev Paul and Rev Ana Fletcher and team, who have a busy week ahead – they’re being priested at Saturday’s Diocesan Thanksgiving and Ordination, then returning to Whanganui to put the finishing touches on the the cafe!
The cafe is also the recipient of this Saturday’s offering at the Diocesan Thanksgiving and Ordination. Please be prepared to give generously to bless this enterprise and the people they exist to support.
