Core Group Meetings

At these meetings we share ideas and make plans. Everyone is welcome – members and potential members. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 12:30pm-2:30pm at Knox Presbyterian Church, Domain Road, Whakatane. The dates are as follows:

  September – Tuesday 10th

 October – Tuesday 8th

 November – Tuesday 12th 


Many people are interested in exploring funeral/tangi options: low cost ones, alternatives to embalming, a natural burial site.

Everyone is welcome at a meeting to explore how we might ensure such options become available in the Eastern Bay.

Thursday 29th August 2019

10:00am until 12:00 noon

Knox Presbyterian Church, Domain Road, Whakatane.

Cooperative housing:

Some members are exploring options for cohousing communities. In these, each family has their own independent home and share some facilities such as gardens, a meeting place with large kitchen guest rooms etc.

If you are interested in learning more, contact our Coordinator, Ruth on 027 430 8149
