Our aim is to raise people's confidence about the Bible, to overcome apathy and to offer the resources and support to encourage and equip people in their journey in engaging with it.
In some parts of the world, accessing the Bible, or parts of it, can be difficult. In this country, the problem is more about the fact that some find it difficult to understand and may not see it as relevant to their lives.
We as a Bible Society are working hard in England and Wales and also in different locations around the world to try to change this. We are finding ways to translate and distribute the Bible. As well as creating digital formats, we advocate for the Bible's place in society, helping people identify with it and make sense of it in their daily lives.
For over 200 years the Bible Society has been working to bring the Bible to life; to help people all over the world engage with, identify with, and make sense of.
This mission stimulates a wide range of activities. In some parts of the world, bringing the Bible to life means focusing on translation and distribution projects. Elsewhere it means focusing on leadership training, or literacy programs, or interfaith dialogue. Closer to home, in Wales it means focusing on promotional effort, school mission and devotional resources.
We do everything we can to help individuals and communities engage with the Bible because we believe when they do, lives can change - for the better.
Here in Wales, we are committed to the conviction that the Bible is alive today. It's not an outdated message, it's a living word! The history, culture and language of Wales are closely linked to the Bible. But do we recognize its value today?
We offer various activities, resources, and the Bible in Welsh, all to help people of all ages recognize the value of the Bible in Wales and the world. To see more of the resources we offer, click here.
We recognize that working in partnership is important to the Bible being offered to Wales. We are very grateful to many churches, denominations and missionary organizations that are our partners in our work. If you are passionate about the Bible in Wales, it would be a privilege to contact you to discuss ways of working together.
