In 2011 Oasis Family Church formed the Marlborough Community Development Trust to serve the people of Blenheim. The Trust operates independently from Oasis Family Church, but has strong relational ties. The Trust endeavors to create meaningful connections that encourage, empower and support people through life.
Music 4 Minors is a rhythm and movement programme for preschoolers. Children learn through action songs a range of motor skills, body awareness while building on social and participation skill in a fun enviroment.
This programme also offers parents and caregivers a great opportunity to socialise with other parents of preschoolers and build support networks.
We welcome you and your preschooler(s) to come along and become a part of this group.
When: Every Tuesday morning during the school term at 9:30am - 10:30am
Where: 'The Foundry', John Street, Blenheim.
Cost: Weekly gold coin donation.
What else: Morning tea for children and parents provided.
Breakfast Club is currently running in Blenheim school twice a week and at Mayfield school once a week.
Each week volunteers provide breakfast and games for any students that want to come along. It's a great way to serve the children of our community and give the children a great start to the day.
The Trust administers a programme based on Sean Covey's book 'The 7 Habit of Highly Effective Teenagers' to a huge number of year 8 students throughout the Blenheim region. The programme seeks to equip the students with practical life skills and principles.
School Stationery Project
The Trust annually raises enough funds to provide every student at Blenheim and Mayfield Schools with all the stationery they need for the year. Fundraising comes not only through those that attend Oasis Family Church but in previous years has involved other churches and fundraising events involving the families of the children who attend these schools. It's a great way to connect with and support these families.
