Summary

A committed and vocal Christian, Marjorie Moffitt stood for the Christian Democrat Party in the 2003 elections for the New South Wales Legislative Assembly seat of Manly. She was inspired to nominate after hearing Rev. Nile and Rev. Gordon Moyes speak on behalf of the CDP. She had been actively involved in her local community of Manly for over 40 years and described herself as a dedicated housewife and the mother of two grown children. Marjorie Moffitt had been involved in church-based groups such as the Girls Friendly Society and the Christian Endeavour Brigade, as well as local soup kitchens for the homeless and destitute.
