2018 Work Day 25th August 2018

Much of CYC is run on the donation of money and time given by it’s supporters…

Come along and donate some time at our CYC work day.

Help us knock several jobs on the head that help us keep CYC running and having the ability to share the saving gospel with those that pass through out gates.

Not only is it a great way to lend a hand, you can get a work out and some fellowship in at the same time.

See you there.

CYC Waihola is keen as mustard for our camps to be filled with passionate leaders with a real desire to reach young people for God.

Whether you are a natural born leader or just like to work away in the background we would love to have you attend our camp.

It will be full of useful tips and information for any young person looking or already serving in a leadership role.

If you have attended the leadership camp before then we welcome you to come along and share your experiences and join in the fellowship with future leaders.
