I’m a mum from NZ with a 2 year old, and there is a Salvation Army centre nearby which runs a preschool music and movement class. There is no prayer or proselytising, and so despite my feelings about not supporting religions, I have taken my daughter to a few sessions. The people are very nice, and my daughter loves it. They also have a community garden, a “community cuppa” (for those in need of companionship) and other services, some of which I’ve helped with in the past. There’s no mention of God, just helping people. And I’d like to help out again… But I feel really guilty because at the end of the day, there is no forgetting they are a church! What should I be doing here, in your opinion? Thank you.
