We need people like you

Our mission to offer the Bible to the world is a big one. But with your help, we believe it’s possible.

We need people like you to join our team. We invite you to give your time and skills, and work with us as we seek to overcome the barriers that keep the Bible shut for so many people.

Already, thousands of volunteers in England and Wales have committed to this mission.

Will you be part of it too?

You can be part of one of the following teams:

Speaking team

Schools team

Around 300,000 primary school children in the country currently hear the Bible’s stories every week, thanks to our amazing Schools team. But we’d love to get into more schools to open the Bible for more children. You just need to have around an hour available each week during school time.

And this is a flavour of what you’ll do:

  • Together with other members of the Schools team, you’ll gather up a few ‘biblical’ props and costumes, and act out scripted Bible stories during school assembly times.
  • We’ll train you and help you approach your local primary school to set everything up.
  • You’ll have the privilege of seeing children discover the Bible, often for the first time in their lives.

We guarantee you’ll love this project. It’s unbelievably simple and easy to do. The vision is to get Bible storytelling into every primary school in England and Wales – so it’ll be coming your way eventually!
