Marralomeda is a Christian community where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life together. Nineteen people with intellectual disabilities live in four homes in Redwood with those who support them. Through ordinary daily activities, we support each other and enable the unique gift of each person to be recognized and celebrated.
In November 1989 Anne-Marie and Roger Pike and their family welcomed Ann Miller and Margaret Bowring from the Templeton Centre in Christchurch to live with them. Since then many other people with an intellectual disabilities have made Marralomeda their home. Marralomeda was inspired by the concept of the L’Arche communities.
We are a community that:
