Community service at King’s is carried out through our ‘Christianity at Work’ programme. Creating opportunities to engage with the community teaches our students the value of putting faith into action.
We want our students to learn that giving their time and skills to the service of others is a rewarding and important commitment, one that should be ongoing throughout their life.
King’s students share their time and energy with a number of local programmes and organisations including:
- the Mangere Refugee Centre
- the Reading in Schools Programme in local schools
- Middlemore Hospital
- the Women’s Refuge Centre
- IHC Homes and IHC Social
- local retirement homes
- day-care centres
- after school programmes.
We are always open to new community service ideas and keen to support student initiatives. Please email a member of our chaplaincy team with any community service ideas or enquiries.
