Grace Notes – August 2020

An inclusive Christian community in Auckland, New Zealand

Grace Notes – August 2020

mainly music
Recently, on a cold wet Tuesday morning, I was delighted to see a good number of
preschool children happily singing, dancing, banging sticks together, waving rainbows
and splashing excitedly in imaginary puddles. The children were accompanied by
mothers, grandmothers and the occasional au pair – no fathers, although they are very
welcome – and they were all attending mainly music at Saint Andrews. This excellent
programme is organised and carried out by dedicated Saint Andrew’s volunteers,
some of whom have been doing this for quite a few years. I was helping in the kitchen
– yes, children and adults also get morning tea – and I was able to watch and enjoy
the activities. Dalia took part in the singing and dancing; ask her about it – she looked
as if she was enjoying herself.
mainly music is a really worthwhile outreach into the community. If you would like to
become a helper, I am sure that you would be welcomed. Please contact Pauline at
Saint Andrews on 09 4181312 or 0276665035
