Dinners connecting young Coasties

Posted at 11:00am Tuesday 03 Sep, 2019 | By MacKenzie Dyer Author

Creating a sense of community amongst local 18 to 30-year-olds is the goal for Dinner with Friends, an initiative set up by Zoe and Tim Wood earlier this year. 

Dinner with Friends is where several dinners are hosted in homes across the community, all on the same evening.  Everyone who signs-up is assigned a dinner party to attend, that is held at a host's house. 

The food is mainly provided by the host, but is contributed to by guests as well.

At the most recent dinner on Tuesday August 20, eight dinners were hosted, with around 10 people at each. This was the second Dinner with Friends event.

“The idea came from talking to people in this age group from our church,” says Zoe.

“We saw a desire in them to connect with others and to discuss certain things – and what better place to do this than over dinner?”

The next dinner party will be held on Tuesday, October 15. Info and registration, tim@northgate.org.nz.
