Big thanks to everyone who gave up a day of their holiday time and came along to the Service Day on Tuesday 3rd July. First up, the young people from a range of our programmes got together and ate some breakfast before heading out into the Challenge garden. When lunch time rolled around the place was looking tidier than it has in a long time! After lunch the group split off to do different acts of service. Groups missioned to Karori Cemetery to tidy up the graves, to a Challenge supporter’s house to help out around the garden and to a family home to hang out with a refugee family.
The group came back together later in the day and shared food, which was important after a hard days work. Some input about the duty of service as a citizen followed, together with sharing some good thoughts and we were all encouraged to actively serve more in their everyday life. Then at the end of the day all concerned reflected on their service in a debrief session.
