All Saints + Common Good Coffee Missional Adventure Opportunity
We have an exciting event and opportunity coming up on Sunday 24th Sept at All Saints, following the 10:30 Central Gathering Many of you know that we have been using Common Good Coffee for a while now which among many other things gives a significant amount of its profits to freedom businesses in Kolkata. (As well as tasting epic) Recently there has been a collection of kingdom shakers in the Diocese propositioned with buying and operating a Coffee Truck through Common Good Coffee. A good number of those Kingdom shakers are All Saints parishioners.
So whats happening?? We want you to come, see, hear and participate in this epic missional opportunity that adds a great kingdom story into the public space.
This awesome looking coffee truck has made its way down from Auckland this week, you will see it here in the All Saints carpark for a while as it prepares to be set up outside St Peters Willis St where alongside mobile opportunities this will be its main source of income and activity.
Sunday 24th Sept. The truck will be up and running full steam here at All Saints for all to participate and see. With our very own Warren behind the machine. Paul Fletcher (The face of Common) with be zooming in and the Truck team (Noah and Matt Crawshaw) will be here to share all about their dreams and hopes for this adventure. How do you get involved??
This is an opportunity for you to decide if you want to participate in some of the initial seed investment for this adventure. Initial seed investment, beyond the truck purchase, will include wages (living wage), site rental and initial operational costs. We have a couple of people here at All Saints that are prepared to underwrite the initial purchase of the truck itself as they are passionate about kingdom growth, mission and raising up local leaders. Come and hear and decided if you want to join them? The idea is that this kingdom initiative is operating to provide a source of income for Common Good, which supports transformative work in India (Sunday 24th Sept we also have NZCMS here at All Saints who have missionaries in India who are a big part of this work. ) It also serves as a mission community to provide people with employment and raise up young kingdom leaders, spear headed by Noah Schneider, Paul Fletcher and Guy Benton. Common Good Coffee exists to spark more good in places of extreme poverty and modern slavery. We are so stoked to be part of a diocese family that recognises and has championed this opportunity - and it's super encouraging to see our people get behind this and see it not only do good - but also offer a great connection spot in central Wellington that can grow and encourage wider kingdom initiatives. Pray about your involvement, come for coffee, and hear the korero about how and what impact this initiative is hoping to have. I have attached more information below for you to have a look at.
