We also offer counselling to parents and play therapy to children and adults.

Upcoming Events

Annual General Meeting

We would like to invite you to our 2022 Annual General Meeting to hear about the work we have done over the last year, supporting more than 2,600 Otago tamariki and their whānau.

Our guest speaker will be Father Tony Curtis, the Dean of Dunedin.

“Fr Tony has experience in connecting the church with Civic and social justice movements in the United Kingdom, and has delighted in introducing, and involving, children with church. He has a long history of involvement with church choral music – at his Cambridge College and in Newcastle Cathedral. He has just completed a PhD in theology at Durham University, and would like to further develop the links between academic theology and practical church life.”
