Welcome to your Canny Yem

About Us

What We’re All About

We would like to invite you to come and join us for some good food and interesting conversation. We call our gathering ‘Canny Yem’ because we’re trying to emulate a good home in Newcastle for folk to meet and spend time sharing with each other. We celebrate our wonderful differences. We know we are not perfect but we’re open to learning and discovering and we always endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming atmosphere. Canny Yem is for those with faith and those without faith. It’s for those exploring faith and those who’ve lost faith. It’s for those with big questions and those with doubts. We don’t know everything and we’re certainly not experts, but we enjoy meeting with each other. So why not come along? We look forward to meeting you!
