40 Unchurched Kids Share the Good News
MAtt recently had the privilege of visiting some schools in Bundaberg, Queensland and sharing the Good News of Jesus with kids there. After returning home, we received this very encouraging message from Nicole, who teaches Religious Instruction at one of the state schools in Bundaberg:
“I teach two classes of year 1 and 2 kids each week. When I came to class today with your follow up postcard I asked the kids to teach me what they learnt last week in your presentation (unfortunately I couldn’t be there to see it and had no idea what was said).
I had two kids from each class come up and draw your illustration on the whiteboard and everyone was able to retell the story amazingly well on their own accord.
I just heard the Good News of Jesus spoken to me from nearly 40 unchurched kids. Totally made my day. You are all making an impact. Thank you so much for the work you do.”
Together we are making an impact – thank you for any generous gift you can make to help share the Good News of Jesus with more kids like these.
Help share Jesus with 115,000 kids!
Scruff the Dog has his own ideas about why you should give to the Appeal (watch the video below to find out) but Creative Director MAtt Gorton says,
“I’m here to ask you to give generously towards the Appeal…so we can share Jesus with 115,000 kids this year!“
Through the support of generous partners like you, we have already performed 261 shows this year.
But the busiest time is still ahead and performing live shows in schools – along with all the other ways we share Jesus with kids – comes with a significant cost.
In 2018 our goal is to perform at least 850 shows in schools, churches and through Holidays Kids’ Clubs, as well as train hundreds of children’s ministry workers, create new Biblical resources for kids, and help kids get answers to their biggest questions.
Please give by 30 June to help reach the $250,000 financial-year-end goal – to help share Jesus with 115,000 kids throughout Australia and New Zealand this year. Thank you for your partnership.

Your support helps kids get answers to their biggest questions
After a recent show on the NSW South Coast, kids were invited to ask questions, and one young girl named Beth* stood up and said …
“I don’t think Jesus can still be alive, because He doesn’t bring people back to life anymore.”
The young girl went on to share that her grandfather had passed away last year, and she wanted to know why he wasn’t brought back to life. Everyone in the room was silent, and then Matt responded…
“I started by saying how sad it is that her grandad died, and that it must be very hard for her. I also agreed that Jesus often doesn’t bring people back to life today. Then I said, ‘But the Bible says that Jesus did beat death when He came back to life’. And that one day He promises that He will put an end to death completely. And so, the Bible promises that everyone who trusts in Jesus will get to live with Jesus forever one day.”
Thank you for any generous gift you can give to help ensure more kids are given the opportunity to ask their big questions about God and life!

‘Christmas Is Merry!’ – announcing our 2016 Christmas Show!
Christmas is a great time of celebration. We eat delicious food. We set up Christmas decorations. And we wish everyone “Merry Christmas.” But is it just the doing of those things that makes Christmas a joyous time? Or is there some deeper meaning? What is it that makes Christmas Merry?
This Christmas the team at Quiz Worx will be exploring this question. Using puppets, a brand new song, engaging visuals and stories from the Bible, they will show that Christmas is merry because of Jesus Christ.
Bookings are now closed for our 2016 season (14 November – 23 December) but give us a call to book for Easter and Christmas 2017.
Please note that while we will do our best to accommodate your requested date/s, bookings for Christmas are taken on a first come, first served basis and it’s a good idea to have a backup date in the case that your requested date is not available.
Here are some photos from our 2015 Christmas Shows:

The Amazing Rescue Comic (2016 Edition)
|This glossy comic has been completely re-illustrated and is a great evangelistic tool for use with children ages 5-12 years old. Please note, this comic is not for use or distribution in Special Religious Education (NSW) or Religious Instruction (QLD). Featuring three stories, all with a ‘rescue’ theme, it is fun to read, well set out, and clear in its message.The first story, ‘Jungle Adventure’, is about a reporter, Jane McClane, who is captured by the evil tribe of Tsaziki. Can she be saved? Her only chance will be as Tazo, the mythical great talking ape, comes to save her.This story is followed by the ‘Real Rescue’, which tells the true story that we are all involved in, that we need to be rescued from the consequences of our sin. It is shown that Jesus, through his life, death and resurrection is the only way to be rescued.The final story follows two main characters: Scruff, the disobedient dog, and Clarence, the hero. Clarence makes Scruff a boat, and gives him one rule: ‘Do not pull out the plug.’ Scruff disobeys this one rule with drastic consequences. He is sinking, about to drown, and cannot save himself. What will happen? Grab the comic to find out.Comics are discounted for bulk orders. Contact us for quantities other than those listed below.

Quiz Worx is coming to…Sydney?! 19-29 July, 2016
Yes, you read that right! For the first time ever, Quiz Worx is coming to Sydney! Well, not quite the first time, considering we are from Sydney, but it is the first time we are setting aside time in July to visit schools in Sydney. So why not kick-start Term 3 with a Quiz Worx puppet show at your school? The dates are 19-29 July, 2016 and we want to visit as many schools in Sydney as possible during that period.
Why are we doing this, you ask?
Because we want to share the good news of Jesus with 70,000 kids this year. We’ve brought on some new performers to help us visit more places and reach more kids, and part of that means we are able to do more shows in Sydney throughout the year. So give us a call on (02) 9709 8796 or email us at [email protected] to book your school show today.
