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 150 Bible Societies throughout the world to bring the Bible to those that don’t have one.

Translation projects 2020

Bible translation stands at the heart of Bible Society’s mission, enabling the Word of God to be placed into people’s hands in their heart language.

 

That's why Bible Society New Zealand is currently raising funds to help translation projects in New Zealand, the South Pacific, Thailand and Vietnam.

Bible for the NZ Police

A year ago, Bible Society New Zealand began working with the Police Christian Support Network (PCSN) to create a Bible especially for the New Zealand Police. This special-edition Bible is now finished and is currently being printed at the Amity Printing Press in China. We aim to have it ready to launch at the PCSN conference later this year.


A gift of just $9 will provide one Bible for a member of the Police.

Bible A Month Club

Are you blessed enough to own a Bible? Millions aren’t.

 

In New Zealand it’s easy to get a Bible. But there are millions of Christians in countries where Bibles are in desperately short supply or not available at all.

 

Join Bible a Month Club and you’ll join Bible Society and nearly 10,000 other Kiwis committed to regular prayer and giving to help get Bibles into people’s hands and hearts all over the world.

The Persecuted Church

Morocco and Algeria are north African countries on the Mediterranean that share a land border. Today, they are 99% Muslim countries, making them two of the most difficult countries in the world in which to carry out Bible mission.

 

That’s why we’re currently working closely with the Bible Societies in each country to make the Word of God more accessible to those seeking its guiding light.

All over China, churches are growing rapidly. The demand for Bibles is huge, especially amongst poor Christians living in rural, often isolated areas.

 

You can help make the Bible accessible to them by partnering with us to get more Bibles into the hands of waiting Chinese Christians.
