Our Bible Projects

Our Bible projects are all about making the Bible accessible and encouraging interaction with it.

We undertake a range of Bible projects both here in New Zealand and around the world.  Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we’re able to support creative Bible projects in more than 30 countries each year.  Plus they enable us to reach out to Kiwi children and youth with Bible resources aimed at helping them discover more of God’s great story and their own place in it.


International support

We want a world where every person in every country has access to the Bible.

Each year we work in more than 30 countries partnering with local Bible Societies in a range of Bible mission projects. From teaching people to read and write using Bible literacy resources to producing Braille Bibles for the blind, Bible Society New Zealand is able to bring the Bible to tens of thousands of people every year who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it.

Bible Month 2017

Bible Month is all about encouraging Christians in New Zealand to make the Bible an important part of their faith journey.  Each year we work with hundreds of churches to promote the Bible and distribute resources to help people do this.  In 2017, our Bible Month campaign will include some study resources so you and your church can read and talk about the Bible together.

Pass It On

In 2015 we launched the Pass It On campaign – designed to resource parents and grandparents to pass the Bible on to the children in their lives.  We’ve produced some creative mobile apps, Bible reading plans, Bible research, special children’s Bibles in English and Māori, and kids’ milestone packs to help with this.

Easter camps

Each year, Bible Society partners with Easter camp organisers throughout the country to deliver innovative, specially designed Scripture products for youth.  These products are given away for free and are designed to help young people connect the ancient story of Scripture with their lives in 21st century New Zealand. In 2017 we’ll produce a custom-designed Gospel of Luke complete with prayer reflection sections and study resources for small groups.

The Aetherlight

We’re partnering with Scarlet City – an Auckland game studio – in promoting The Aetherlight, a web-based gaming platform that delivers Bible content to teens and pre-teens within an allegorical world called Aethasia.  Within Aethasia, gamers can explore the grand narrative themes and stories of Scripture.

We partner with a range of organisations to distribute free Bibles to those in need and those that may have never encountered it before.  From the New Zealand Defence Force to Habitat for Humanity, we distribute more than 50,000 Bibles, New Testaments and Scripture portions.
