Saline Process Training

Saline equips healthcare professionals to impact their workplace for Christ by being SALT and LIGHT.

This is a training process that disciples, trains, and coaches healthcare workers to skillfully and confidently assess where a patient is in their journey towards faith in Christ. 

The training provides practical tools to help a Christian demonstrate the love and reality of Jesus in healthcare, all with permission, sensitivity and respect. Within the training, five main questions are addressed:

  • Why is faith important to healthcare?
  • What are the opportunities and barriers to fulfilling God's call?
  • What is my role?
  • What are the tools I can use to cultivate, sow and harvest?
  • Where do we go from here?

Euthanasia Developments

In June 2017, David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill was drawn from the ballot.  This Bill is now proceeding through to the Justice Select Committee  - CMFnz presented both written and oral submissions. If you can attend the oral submissions being held in your area, we would welcome your support! Contact us.

All written submissions will be available to the public. We think medical euthanasia is dangerous for both patients and our country as a whole. Read more about the current public debate around legalising it and what we've said. We encourage our members to read this Health Select Committee’s Report and meet with your local MPs to discuss the dangers and your thoughts directly. Sign up to the Doctor's Say No campaign to register your objection.
