Going a bit grungy for this next design. Do we still do that or is it a bit 2009?

Last time I checked, it's still "in". It's been a while... waiting for the next style :-)
@Inka Mathew - haha, me too. Getting a bit tired of the way websites look at the moment. Nothing is really standing out to me. Grunge felt right for this website though, it's for a prayer meeting which is pretty loud and intense. My normal clean / simple style just didn't feel right for this.
Then go for it. It's best to design based on client's style and mood. I think the grunge look will work for that event. I'd do the same thing.
I guess it depends on the look you're going for. I think the best use is to make it subtle enough that it looks flat without it but it's not immediately noticeable, unless you want an antiqued look or something. I agree about trends, by the time they're recognized widely as a trend they're already aging.
Looks good. I wouldn't call it grunge, more of a tactile graphics feel. Love the background gradient.
I like the rough look. I wouldn't call it "grungy". It gives the design a nice character and works well with the color scheme.
You can't always go by the trends, do what you feel is best for the project and you can't go wrong. Seems like a solid design so far :)
Haha! I think grunge is turning into more of giving things texture? Either way, this looks good. Diggin' the colour scheme. Looking forward to seeing the rest.
Nice! I like the typography and textures... I would lose the gradient bg though... heh... :)
I think this is more: 'well-used,' or 'well-loved' texturing.
Awesomeness! Diggin' the texture/grunge. Very clean work.
Love the texture.
