    AYM HOUSES - how intentional community is shaping, transforming and challenging our young leaders to live the best life that God has for them.

    FACT: COMMUNITY CHALLENGES YOU TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS. HEB 10:24-25
    Nothing makes you more like Jesus than the daily grind of interactions with others. God also gives us church/community as a way to become more like Him.
    God’s Word reminds us that we are put in relationships in order to encourage one another in our pursuit of God and His Kingdom. It’s within the context of church/community that we are given the opportunity to be refined as followers of Christ.

    If you feel like you might want to jump on board the AYM Houses waka for one heck of an adventure, then join us for a fancy afternoon tea and an honest Q+A of what it could look like for you in 2019. Bring your mates if they are curious too!

    This training is for anyone involved in children or family ministry – particularly key leaders from each parish.  Facilitated by Diana Langdon, the National Strandz Enabler, it will focus on how to keep children, their families and ourselves safe. We will look at our roles and responsibilities as leaders, creating a culture of safe practice, discuss possible scenarios, and how to manage incidents when they occur.

    Please click to register here.  The cost is $40 per parish.

    This is the first specific C&F safety training offered in the diocese in the last two years, so even if you have done some training in safe practice in the past, this will be a great refresher which includes the most recent information.We want to encourage you to bring your whole team - so we are putting on dinner and time to network with each other.  Please contact Colette if you have any questions: colette@wn.ang.org.nz.
