Bake for Bibles

Do you love to bake?

Then we need you to help us by baking for Bibles!

We need bakers like you to bake and ice animal-shaped cookies to sell to your family, friends and church to raise funds for Bible mission. We’ll send you a Bake for Bibles welcome pack to get you going, all you need to provide are the ingredients and your talent! You can get your children involved or you can do it with your friends or on your own.

We’re currently piloting this project with bakers from all over New Zealand, so we’re not signing up any new bakers for 2017. Bake for Bibles month will be September, so if you want to sign up for 2018, just fill in the form below.

Bake for Bibles is a great way to get engaged with Bible mission and help bring the Bible to people who currently don’t have one.


What will the funds go towards?

All funds raised through Bake for Bibles goes towards New Zealand and international Bible work.


When and how

Bake for Bibles is happening again in September 2018.  To take part, you’ll need to contribute:

  • your time and creative talents
  • the ingredients
  • your networks for selling
  • and we’d love to see some photos of your creations!

We’ll send you a welcome pack in August 2018 with all instructions plus the recipe. The pack will also include some animal-shaped cookie cutters, cookie packets and a Noah’s ark-themed presentation box.


The recipe

The recipe we’re using is an easy shortbread recipe. It was chosen because of its universal appeal and relatively simple ingredients.

We’d like to thank Chelsea for giving us permission to use this recipe in Bake for Bibles. You can check out the recipe here.


Getting the kids involved

You can get the kids involved at every stage of this project.  Whether helping you in the kitchen baking and icing or helping sell the cookies at church, there are plenty of opportunities for them to take part. As well, we’ll send you a special presentation box for the cookies to go in which the children can colour-in beforehand.
