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 cookies to sell to your family, friends and in your church to raise funds for Bible mission in China.

Last year, we piloted our Bake for Bibles project with bakers from all over New Zealand, and received some great feedback. One baker said “Everything was fabulous. People commented about the taste of the biscuits which were yum!”  And another told us “Kids Sunday icing project- a huge success.”

Sophie Gray says Bake for Bibles is fun (and delicious)!

Nationally-known cook, author, Destitute Gourmet founder and Food Director of Bauer Media, Sophie Gray says Bake for Bibles is a great project for kids, friends and the whole family. And very importantly, the cookies are delicious!

“I think it’s a really fun and accessible way to get the kids involved in a baking project. The animal theme is very relatable and Noah’s Ark is a familiar and popular story, whether you’ve grown up in a household of faith or not.

School holiday activity

We have extended the project to accommodate two lots of school holidays allowing plenty of time for you to get your bake on. Whether helping in the kitchen baking & icing or helping sell the cookies at church, there are plenty of opportunities for the kids to take part.

The project presents much opportunity for churches to do a study or play of Noah’s ark followed by a morning tea where you can sell your cookies!
