Song, games and prayer

Salvation Army Flat Bush is working hard to bring diverse communities together and give them a sense of belonging in Flat Bush.

The Flat Bush Corps is a new initiative of Salvation Army Auckland, with plans of developing five acres of land at the corner of Chapel Road and Baverstock Road for a multifunctional community centre in the area.

A lot of groundwork is being done by officers Ameet and Jessica Londhe as they reach out to the community with compassion and integrity.

More recently, they organised a beautiful service for Mother’s Day along with fun games and plenty of food at Baverstock Oaks School on Sunday night.

Colonel Heather Rodwell, Territorial Secretary for Women’s Ministries, had a special message for all mothers present.

Mothers of all ethnicities and ages gathered for prayer, song and dance, and were spoilt as they left for back home.

  •  Salvation Army Flat Bush Sunday Service is held at 5pm, Baverstock Oaks School Hall at 12 Baverstock Road. Families with young children are welcome.
