Each year we give away more than 50,000 Bibles, New Testaments and Scripture portions to groups all over New Zealand.
We work closely with partner organisations and churches including Habitat for Humanity, The Interchurch Council for Hospital Chaplaincy, the New Zealand Defence Force (Navy New Testaments pictured above) and the New Zealand Police to bring the Bible to those that may never have encountered it before.
In 2017, we aim to reach 50,000 people through our Bible and Scripture grant programme.
