In response to the work of Mainly Music NZ ( with families who find life tough, a sale of art is being held on Thursday 19 July (5pm – 8pm), Friday 20 July (11am – 8pm) and Saturday 21 July (11am – 4pm).  The venue is Ngaire Avenue Community Church, Ngaire Ave, Newmarket.  Credit card facilities will be available.  Mainly Music is a not-for-profit organisation, which encourages churches to use a pre-school music programme to connect their communities.  We have also taken this programme into homes for teenage mothers, mothers with drug addictions, refugee centres, prison family units – and anywhere churches find it hard to reach.  We call this our ‘Excluded Communities’ programme – and we have unfortunately had to scale this back this year due to funding constraints.  The profits from this Art Sale will all go to the funding of this important work.
