Africans ‘Taking Back’ New Zealand

‘Taking Back’ is an African evangelistic band that will be touring Christchurch, Tauranga and Auckland in October. They’ll be performing at local schools such as Aranui High, Central New Brighton, Avonside Girls, Mairehau High St Margaret’s College, as well as busking in the streets and performing in local churches. We’re looking for some musically minded volunteers who would love to hang out with the band, assist with time-keeping, odd jobs and getting them around venues.

The dates are: Christchurch 10 – 20 October, Auckland 11 October, and Tauranga 20 – 24 October.

On another note, there are still some spots in their performing schedules in particular:


  • Monday October 13 (in the evening)

  • Wednesday October 15 (in the morning)

  • Thursday October 16 (morning and afternoon)

Their programme is still being finalised in Tauranga and there are many time slots still free.


So if you would like them to come and play for your school, church or other organisation or if you can assist them on the ground, please contact
