We are here to serve

Welcome to the Servants Health Centre!


It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Leanne Stewart as the Practice Nurse Leader at Servants Health Centre. Leanne comes to us with a strong nursing background with clinical roles at the SDHB in Dunedin Hospital. She has been at Servants as a volunteer nurse for several months. Leanne has a strong commitment to being part of the leadership of our ministry and to be serving God in this way.

Leanne will be transitioning from her current job and start taking up responsibilities from Monday 11 August 2014

We look forward to welcoming Leanne and supporting her in to this new role for her at Servants.

The Board is committed to developing the collaborative management team with John Arnold as the Leader along with Leanne and a couple of others to lead the Centre’s day to day operation and take the vision of Servants into its next phase.

Welcome Leanne and God bless you as the Practice Nurse Leader !

Vision Meeting 2014

Recently many staff attended a Visioning Meeting at the van Rij home. We enjoyed their hospitality and the chance to meet other workers. Following this was a good discussion with frank exchanges of views and ideas for moving ahead with the vision for Servants Health Centre.

Thank you everyone who attended and thank you God for blessing this meeting.  

Doctors and Nurses -- we need even a little help from you

Servants Health Centre has been open since January 2010
Our hours are 9am to 5pm.

We are a group of Christian health professionals who see a need in Dunedin for a clinic serving people who struggle to afford usual health care.


This need is seen in many ways. Chemists report many people asking them for free advice. Hospital emergency departments often see people who need GP care only. We know of low income workers who will take their children to the doctor, but not go themselves. Some people go to one doctor, but then change to a new one when their debt becomes too high.

We don't want a lack of money to stop people getting basic health care.

We believe that by serving people, we are serving God, and showing his love to those people.

We also believe that, by providing a General Practice Clinic, other people will use that space to offer their services to people. We already have counsellors, pregnancy support, and postnatal support workers interested.

We hope you will support us.
