18-24 JUNE 2023

National Volunteer Week 2023

The theme for National Volunteer Week is:

“Time to Shine – He Wā Pīataata”

This year Bible Society New Zealand and Manna Christian Stores would like to celebrate the special people who serve in our churches, plan, and organise fundraising events, coach in our classrooms and sports teams, and in many other capacities, for the benefit and support of our communities and whānau.

We want to honour the collective energies and mana of our wonderful volunteers by offering a special Manna Christian Stores voucher for purchases bought in store or online during Volunteer Week, 18 – 24 June 2023.

Without the collective support of our faithful volunteers who pray, donate to our appeals, or collaborate with others to organise community fundraisers, we would not be able to achieve the mission of making the Bible accessible to all people, at a price they can afford, in a language they understand, and in a format that engages and resonates with the readers. 

Hebrews 6:9 says that “God will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” In the same way, our organisation wants to acknowledge your efforts and the generosity which you have kindly demonstrated toward others in the community work you are doing. Your actions and prayers are giving hope to many, and your contributions help make the world a better place to live!
