Who Are We?

[Tramping][Friday Night][Camps & Events][Shed Facility][Contact Us]

In 1999 the Anglican Church of Greymouth and Kumara appointed a new youth worker by the name of Nicky Mora. Her husband Tim had just arrived in the Parish as a trainee priest and both had had experience in youthwork. Very quickly under their joint leadership the youth group grew and expanded into a community based youth project for the young people of the Grey District with administration and oversight support provided by the church. The church's support also includes the provision of "The Shed," a multi-purpose youth activities centre with an amazing range of facilities. The project has been very successful with around 20% of the High School aged young people in the Grey District currently on the total roll.

The project was put in place because it was recognised that on the Coast young people can miss out on opportunities and don't always have the support they need to get through the teenage years and the struggles that brings easily. It was in recognition of this that the Greymouth Churches Community Youth Project was established and gathered together an amazingly dedicated team of volunteers. The aims of the project are to provide weekly and other programmes and activities that meet the needs of the young people in the Grey District in a safe and controlled environment. These programmes include social, recreational and skills learning activities. Camps and outdoor wilderness activities (often subsidised). We involve ourselves in community initiatives and run social justice projects. We are members of the West Coast Youth Workers Collective, network with DCYFS, the High Schools, the police and District Council and have twice been awarded the supreme Trustpower Award for overall best community project in the Grey District.

Our amazing and dedicated leadership team.
