Bible Society New Zealand to celebrate 175th Anniversary in 2021
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.

Discover the Bible
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.
