Pastors like Wang Jin serve thousands of believers at multiple churches in China.

In China

More than a million new believers come to faith in China every year. You can make a difference for them today.

I want to support Bible mission in China

Churches are so full their congregants spill out on the pavement. Christians in rural areas walk for hours just to attend a service, while more and more city-dwellers can be found in churches on a Sunday morning.

It’s a remarkable story. And supporters of Bible mission in England and Wales been at the heart of it. Over decades, working with the Chinese authorities, Bible Society has carved out a unique ministry in China. The result is that the Bible has become far more widely available, and the Church is growing.

Supporting new believers

Such is the increase in new believers that here is now an acute shortage of trained pastors in China, with only one trained minister for every 6,700 Christians nationally. It means pastors and preachers must often spread themselves between five or six churches, with congregants hearing their pastor preach perhaps once every two months.

For this reason, we provide Bible study materials and run training classes to help trainee pastors understand the Scriptures and bring them to life in their local churches.
