Our story

Since 1846 in New Zealand, it’s been our mission to help make the Bible accessible to everyone and encourage interaction with it.

We do this by working in New Zealand and in partnership with other Bible Societies around the world. We take the Bible and find ways to translate and distribute it, create digital formats, advocate for its place in society, and help people relate to and make sense of it in their everyday lives.

To further our mission, Manna Christian Store became part of the Bible Society group in 2017. Their story began in 1972 in Invercargill and has grown to 14 stores nationwide today.

Together we form the Bible Society Group and we are driven by one conviction: that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change for good.

We look forward to continuing on our journey together.
