Methodist Social Services offers FREE family / whanau based education programmes aimed at primary and intermediate aged children and their families, the parenting programme Parenting Through Separation, and the adult programme WAVES for bereavement by suicide.  Koha / donations are welcomed.

Our family education programmes require a parent / caregiver to attend alongside of the children.  The parent/ caregiver attends the adults group, at the same time as the child attends the children’s group. This enables parallel learning to occur. A time of sharing is usual at the end of each weekly session. Afternoon tea is also provided. Each programme has 3 experienced tutors, with a maximum of 10 children per group. The programmes run on a roster basis on either a Tuesday or Thursday from 4.15.  Please refer to each individual programme for further information.

If you wish to enrol in a programme please either contact Laura at the office or you can also email to
