Our mission is to help make the Bible accessible to everyone and encourage interaction with it

We believe the Bible is for everyone. That’s why we’re working tirelessly to make the Bible available and understood here in New Zealand and around the world. We partner with New Zealand churches, organisations and over 150 Bible Societies throughout the world to bring the Bible to those that don’t have one.

You’re invited to celebrate 175 years with us

Join us at a 175th anniversary event as we look back at the early story of the Bible in Aotearoa, and hear from some of the people who have shaped Bible Society’s mission over the years – our supporters.

These free events will be interactive with plenty to look at and learn about.

Our celebration roadshow is visiting 17 towns and cities around the country, so we will be coming to a place near you.

Bible a Month Regular Giving

Join over 2,500 other kiwis who have committed to giving monthly to help put the Bible into the hands of people all around the world. By signing up for a monthly gift, you’ll be partnering with us to help bring Bibles to people in a different country – every month. You’ll be providing one Bible for every $15 you give!

The Bible is the world’s best-selling book of all time

It has shaped the laws and politics of many western countries and influenced language, music and art. Today it continues to inspire many millions of Christians around the world. But what exactly is it?


Is it still important to New Zealanders?

Bible Society is committed to delivering quality research into New Zealand’s relationship with the Bible. Since 2008, we have been engaging research companies such as Nielsen to help us paint a picture of how many New Zealanders read the Bible and the influence it has in their lives.
