2015 Unsung Heroes Awards
Parliament Grand Hall
Date 15 September, 5.30-7.30pm
Nominations are now open for the 2015 Unsung Heroes awards.
In May 2012 the board of New Zealand Christian Network inaugurated a new award – the New Zealand Christian Network Unsung Heroes Award, to recognise service by particular individuals or groups which had gone largely unrecognised, and thereby to bring glory to God who inspired and empowered them.
The 2012 inaugural award was presented to the Church of Christchurch for their “faithful and sacrificial service to the people of Christchurch in the wake of the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes, for working together in a way which demonstrates the spirit of unity which Jesus prayed for, and for being an inspiration and example to all Christians around New Zealand”.
From 2013 the event has been hosted at Parliament with awards created by Auckland artist Karen Sewell and presented jointly by MPs Tim Macindoe and Ross Robertson to five category winners, in front of a large audience which included 14 Members of Parliament.
Nominations are now open for the 2015 Unsung Heroes awards for six weeks up to 23rd May. The NZ Christian Network Board will consider all nominations and make their decisions at the end of May.

An achingly beautiful choral work featuring the Los Angeles Master Chorale performing the great Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso’s final and most famous composition. It conveys a powerful sense of mortality while vividly illuminating the Biblical story of St. Peter, whose grief after he denies Christ surges through this profoundly moving cycle of 20 madrigals (songs)....
