            About Us
             Drury Church seeks to follow the New Testament pattern and operates a common purse which means that everyone shares the produce from the land, including firewood, vegetables, fruit, eggs, milk, meat, butter and cheese, and receives from the Trust, according to need, a small fortnightly income for each household. 
            We have several worship services a week to cater for different needs—men, women, children, youth, family etc.  These take place in the Prayer house and the Dining Room. Mid-week meetings also take place in some of our staff homes.
              Further to this we as a Church offer Bible school, a private day school, children’s programmes with a farm-based theme, permaculture garden experiences, a green area for people to learn a natural and eco-friendly lifestyle, and a place where persons with a need (Body, Soul and Spirit) can find us easily.
              We provide emergency accommodation and mentoring for families and single mothers, youth at risk and people recovering from mental or physical health issues among others. Two of our homes also offer Foster Care to young children.
      Longer term accommodation is available to those who need ongoing support with their rehabilitation (on leaving prison, coming off medication, drugs or alcohol, recovering from mental or physical trauma). As part of their rehabilitation and self-worth we offer them activities, according to their daily capabilities, on our organic farm.
            The day school is of particular benefit to families who have a child that does not fit into the normal system since we run a Christian based personalized learning program. All the children from the family are encouraged to be enrolled as this further helps the family bonding and stability. 
         The Bible School offers persons no longer of school age the opportunity to make up for lost time when they were younger as far as their standard education goes.  Again, we use the Bible and personalized Christian curriculum to encourage those who come to us in becoming stable and confident in their handling of day-to-day life.
               We are involved in mission work both in New Zealand and overseas.  We are very keen to send out teams to encourage churches and groups (Homegroups, Maraes, clubs…) on how to work their land so as to create employment for the unemployed while providing for the basic need of food.
