Steve and Ainsley Apirana
Steve and Ainsley Apirana (living in Australia)
Steve plays the blues from the lands down under. He once considered himself the ugliest person on earth. When he was young other students would always pester him. He knows what it is like to be from down under. But when he realised that God made him beautiful, he found a new track and mission in his life.
Ainsley has also developed an inspiring music ministry and for the past years they have been performing together.
Several times in years past (since 1995) they toured Europe with Atlantic Bridge, inspiring students and teachers in schools across Europe. When working with Atlantic Bridge an added focus is to help mobilise young and old to build bridges and break down walls and to lay the basis for the next generations to discover and perhaps recover some of the foundational values of Christianity; the message of faith, hope and love.
Steve and Ainsley Apirana return to Europe in 2018 with Atlantic Bridge from September 26 till November 18 and afterwards on to Scotland. We are calling this tour the BRIDGEBUILDERS TOUR. They are joined by a team of interns helping create a global community of Bridgebuilders through the Social Media, tying the local and regional performances to create a portal to global settings, allowing young people from all over the world to join the mission of building bridges of friendship, faith and understanding as they break down walls of prejudice, ignorance, misunderstanding and indifference.
