Agora is owned by Agora Community Trust. As a social enterprise we exist to serve our local community through people centered hospitality and initiatives including: Café, Events & Catering –leveraging our strengths in hospitality;  Community Partnerships –building up through our relationships and Community Initiatives –journeying with others for a better future. You can support us and our community initiatives by hiring our venue, booking our boardroom, ordering some catering or by visiting our cafe.

Agora was established by the community of City Bible Church (CBC) in 2008 as an expression of their love for God, their local community and the world. Together Agora and CBC share the facilities at 13b Kent St, Hamilton. It provides an opportunity to offer warm hospitality and compassion to people in need while being a significant supporter and contributor to the local community. Agora is a safe place for people come visit and belong.

Community and Charity:

Many community and corporate groups are served by Agora Community Trust through the hospitality of Agora Events and Agora Catering. While we no longer do our Charity of the Month program we continue to make our spaces available to community groups and charities at discounted rates. 

The profits of Café Agora continue to be reinvested for the benefit of our  local community. In November 2018 Agora celebrated 10 years of business charity and community and so far $134,191 being given back to the local community. 

International connection:

Agora also continues to support Rahab Ministries Thailand as they seek to rescue, restore and re-train those caught up in the sex trade in Bangkok and our friends at Hill Tribe Hope who help to provide water, sanitation, irrigation, health and education to two villages in northern Thailand. We do this by partnering with La Mai coffee and with all the profits from the sale of take-home bags (available for purchase in store), and our Tips for Thailand box going to Rahab. Our green bean coffee purchases from Bright Hope World in Christchurch (they buy direct from Thailand) also supports these rural Thai farmers.
