Quiz Night Fundraise for Tearfund – we need someone to coordinate this - can you help? Kiwi’s love a good quiz night and instead of heading to the pub – wouldn't it be wonderful if they came together via Mt Albert Presbyterian Church. Tearfund have developed a ‘ready to go’ quiz that you can run with minimal effort and little to no expense. All materials like flyers, answer sheets, name and pledge cards etc will be provided. Quiz night is set for Saturday September 12th nationwide and it will be great if MAPC join other churches across Aotearoa and be a host. All money raised will go to Tearfund to help get people out of extreme poverty. More info at www.tearfund.org.nz/quiz

Are you informed about the End of Life Choice Act Referendum?
In September this year, we will all be given the opportunity to vote in a referendum asking if we support the End of Life Choice Act coming into force; asking if we support legalising euthanasia and assisted suicide in New Zealand. The Christian Medical Fellowship of New Zealand strongly opposes this Act. For more information, please visit: www.cmf.nz/euthanasia_referendum and www.carealliance.org.nz and www.defendnz.co.nz
