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.”

When and how

Bake for Bibles is happening again from July 2018- October 2018.

What will I need?

  • Time and creative talents
  • The ingredients
  • Selling networks (Church, family, friends and other community events)
  • If you can we’d love to see photos of your creations!

Once registered we’ll send you a bakers pack with instructions plus the recipe. The pack will also include animal-shaped cookie cutters, cookie packets and a Noah’s ark presentation box.

The recipe

The recipe we’re using is an easy-to-follow shortbread recipe. selected for taste and simplicity. 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 or watch the video below.

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!
