We love seeing how churches are serving schools to point children, parents, and staff to Jesus.
Sarah Chalmers from Hillcrest Chapel in Hamilton writes:
"We have this amazing ministry called Atawhai. Twice a year, a survey is sent to our local school, Silverdale Normal School, asking about what practical support our church can offer whānau.
"This term we had 17 families reach out to us with requests for kids' clothing, which is the most we’ve ever had. It reflects the growing need out there.
"The teacher who picked up all the parcels commented on how meaningful it was to the families involved and how excited she was to be able to give them out."
