Word in Action

We’re bringing the Bible to life. Read all about it in Word in Action, our magazine produced three times a year. It’s full of inspiring stories from around the world.

In this issue …

  • Christians battle through Covid in China with your help
  • ​Journey with us through Lent and Easter
  • Deadly risk of Bible work in Africa

Your support over the last year has been phenomenal. You’ve inspired all of us here at Bible Society with your passion for the cause, and your commitment to sharing God’s word.

You’ll find that this issue of Word in Action is a celebration of everything you’ve made possible since the coronavirus pandemic first gripped the world in spring 2020.

In China, Bibles continued to run off the printing presses – and thanks to you, they’ve gone direct to people who were longing for a copy. Around the globe, your generosity kept Bible work going among the poorest and most vulnerable people through the Rescue and Recovery Fund. And in parts of Africa where communities are under threat from Islamist extremists, you shared the hope of Jesus.

We’re looking forward to Lent and Easter as much as you are, and we’ve created some excellent resources for you, your church and family. Easter is always a time for us to celebrate new life and fresh starts, but this year it seems especially significant. Go to biblesociety.org.uk/easter and journey with us through Lent and Easter.

If you would like to receive Word in Action by post, please sign up here. We'll send it to you three times a year – at no cost – and we'll include our prayer diary Prayer in Action so you can join us in praying for our work around the world.
