At Shore we partner with a number of external Christian organisations to serve those in our local communities and beyond.
Mainly music is a fun music group for parents or primary care givers to enjoy together with their young child. Throughout the session, children develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialize with others. Children are introduced to music, creativity and more. Plus families are given a chance to think about the God-part of life. Mainly Music runs every Wednesday morning at 9:30am during the school term at the Church Hub, 9B Piermark Drive, Rosedale, Auckland. Contact Biffy Savage our Children & Family Pastor for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
Christians Against Poverty works with local churches throughout NZ to lift kiwis out of debt, poverty and its causes. Shore Community Church partners with CAP to run two initiatives:
Gearheads Workshop is a bicycle repair shop located on the North Shore of Auckland. It is a not for profit workshop run by a Christian charity.
