So, you want to change the world? Start with your city!
As part of our mission at Greenlane Christian Centre to renew people and places in Auckland, we are bringing CityServe back this year! CityServe is a weekend where the Greenlane Christian Centre community partners with and serves alongside our city-wide neighbours to tangibly show compassion and foster the common good in our city.
While we are not cancelling this event we are keen to proceed with a slightly modified version of CityServe. We trust that once we get to Level 1 we will have a little more freedom in serving together in projects around our city.
There will be some projects we will still be able to take on and we are currently identifying these. Then we would love for you to get together with your small group, family or friends and either pick up one of the projects we had under Cityserve or find a project in your neighbourhood that you could do together. This might be something like, cleaning up the rubbish at a local park or painting a wall of the local shops, anything that you can see that would be a blessing to your neighbourhood or to our city.
We are currently putting together more information on CityServe for this year and will keep you informed of this and when this would be.
