Missional Communities built around shared life, prayer and youth work
WHO ARE WE?
We are a Wellington Anglican Diocese intentional community with houses throughout the Wellington Diocese that is committed to serving the young people of our communities.
The houses are full of a mix of people. Full time tertiary students studying, people undertaking an apprenticeship and some who have graduated from study and are now working full or part time jobs.
We believe that Jesus has more in store for us than simply getting a degree or good job and living a life chasing the dreams that the world offers us. We believe that we are truly alive when we are living out the call of Jesus to give our lives away in the service of others. We know that by doing this we can get a better understanding of who God is and how much God loves this world and these people that God created.
WHERE ARE WE?
We currently have houses in Thorndon, Lower Hutt, Whanganui, Silverstream, Cannon's Creek, Tawa, Karori, Kilbirnie, Miramar and Newtown.
How We Do Life
In an AYM House life is built around three
1. A rhythm of prayer
2. A rhythm of coming together to share our lives
3. A rhythm of youth work
The rhythms that we maintain (prayer, a shared life, service) provide a structure that not only helps carry us through the year, but sets us up for a lifestyle where we are able to live the kind of life that Jesus calls us to in his Gospels.
Prayers pushes our focus upwards as we look to God to sustain, carry and guide us.
A shared life those things inside us that God wants to develop, grow and heal.
Serving in youth groups, parishes and communities means we are living a life that is outwardly focused to a broken and hurting world.
