The God Who Speaks: The Bible for Catholics

The God Who Speaks is our latest initiative in partnership with the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

We create great online resources to help Catholics of all ages engage with the Bible.

This initiative focuses on celebrating, living and sharing God’s word throughout all 22 Catholic dioceses. 

We want to create new and renewed encounters with Christ through the Scriptures so we collaborate with Catholic dioceses across England and Wales to organise Scripture events.

We want to help achieve transformation in the faith and life of the Catholic Church and in the public arena through evangelisation, education, creative arts and social action.

The God Who Speaks:' Little Bits of God' artwork

This beautiful piece of artwork is on display for the first time at Portsmouth cathedral. Called, 'Little Bits of God' the work will be the centre piece of Bible Society and the Catholic Church’s ‘God Who Speaks’ Campaign.

It was created by local artist Pete Codling who wanted to bring Scripture to life in a modern and engaging way. It focuses on key Gospel stories and the life of a Saint who is celebrated for his work to translate the Bible into Latin. It will go on tour next year.

Art & Culture

Cardinal Vincent Nichols launched this initiative in 2019 with his reflections on Italian Renaissance artist Masaccio's painting 'Saints Jerome and John the Baptist'. It is housed in the National Gallery in London - a place where the Cardinal filmed three reflections for this scripture initiative.
