Big Quiz Night

Sunnyside is excited to be joining churches across the country again this year in hosting the Tearfund Big Quiz Night on Zoom on Saturday 14th November at 7.45pm. Last year we raised an incredible £637 including gift aid and I have high hopes for this year, especially as we have the opportunity to welcome more people to join us – near or far it doesn’t matter as long as they have an internet connection!

It was so lovely seeing familiar faces on Zoom at the annual church meeting recently and what better reason to come together socially and also to raise money for charity. Tearfund suggest a donation of £5 per person – this year. Your donations will be directly to Justgiving, more information to follow on the night. 

Katie Randall-Stratton will be Quizmaster again, albeit from home not church. On the night we will submit our attendance numbers to the Big Quiz dashboard and advise you later in the evening how we’ve contributed to the mass event! There will be six standard rounds – music, food and drink, sport, geography, film, natural world – with an option for two bonus rounds (current events and history) if we have time. 

Sadly this year we cannot be in big in person teams and so we need to approach it a little differently – please follow current Government guidance as to whether you partake alone, with just your household or support bubble, or link up virtually in small teams (perhaps through a whatsapp group to discuss answers, one person should keep track of your final answers). We won’t be able to swap answer sheets so teams will mark their own answers. Whatever team type you have I will need a nominated person to keep me updated with the team score via Zoom private message. The most important thing is to please keep yourselves safe whilst raising money for this great cause.

Participants don’t all have to be Sunnysiders so please do forward on the information to family, friends, neighbours, colleagues etc. It would be fabulous to see folks participating from different countries, counties and churches. The bigger attendance the more we raise for Tearfund. 

We can’t have sign up sheets in church so if you are thinking of coming please add your details to this Google Form: 

Please email the office for the Zoom link to attend this function. The office email is

Look forward to Zooming with you all on the night…
