Speaker Team Volunteers

What’s the Speaker Team?

Bible Society Speakers are a great group of people who love the Bible and want to help us raise vital funds and raise awareness of our mission to offer the Bible to the world.

They give their time to speak on behalf of Bible Society in their own church and other local churches. They fulfil speaking requests that Bible Society receive and some help to represent Bible Society at events like Spring Harvest.

What would I be doing?

  • Visiting churches in your area to ask them to support Bible Society financially and prayerfully. You can use our stories, news updates and magazines to tell everyone about what we do and how, when people engage with the Bible their lives can change, for good.
  • Holding or speaking at events to raise funds for Bible Society.
  • Recruiting donors to our Bible a Month programme. A great thing to do with just £5.00 each month.
  • Helping people explore the Bible for themselves more deeply, by pointing them towards our great resources for Christians in this country.
  • Visits could be to churches or social groups and might involve taking whole or part of a service, preaching or leading a mid-week meeting.

How much of my time is involved?

  • As much as you want to give. As time is precious, we make volunteering for Bible Society as easy as we can so that you can enjoy every moment.
  • Each year, we’d expect you to carry out several speaking engagements. You might drum these up yourself by approaching church leaders, linking up with an Action Group or speaking with the Church Team Members in your area. We might ask you to visit a church to fulfil a request for a speaker that we have received.
  • You will need to attend at least 1 training event per year to ensure your resources are up to date and you are equipped to share the vision of a world where everyone has access to the Bible and can recognise its value for them, their families and communities.

What’s in it for me?

By joining the team of Bible Society volunteers, you’ll be using your skills and experience to offer the Bible to the world. And that’s pretty significant, isn’t it? We also offer reasonable travel expenses and training opportunities. You’ll be part of a great team, and we hope you’ll see churches become inspired and engaged as you share our mission with them.
