19-25 JUNE 2022

National Volunteer Week 2022


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, 19 – 25 June.

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!

As a recognised volunteer, we are offering a *20% discount on any purchase made at Manna Christian Stores, or online, between 19 – 25 June, in acknowledgement of your aroha and hard work. 

Claim your voucher when you nominate a Bible Society NZ volunteer below.

Nominate and win!

Manna Christian Stores are celebrating the volunteers, by not only giving them a *20% discount voucher but by also giving away a daily prize pack during Volunteer Week. All nominated Bible Society volunteers will have the opportunity to win.

On Saturday 25 June, to mark the end of National Volunteers Week, a final prize draw will take place and the winner will receive a special Manna Christian Stores Volunteer Prize Pack.

So nominate your Bible Society volunteer NOW!

“He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.”
“What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”

That sums up what is at the heart of our mission organisation – it’s our generous volunteers who enable us to continue to help make the Bible accessible to everyone and encourage interaction with it.

In the video below, you will discover the lengths our volunteers have gone to help bring Bibles to people in New Zealand and around the world!
