England and Wales

In many parts of the world, the key barrier to people engaging with the Bible is availability. At home, it’s simply that many people don’t think the Bible is relevant to them. We’re determined to change that, and we’re working across society to help people recognise the value of the Bible.

We’re developing resources that help local churches to engage more deeply with Scripture, and sending thousands of volunteers into primary schools to share Bible stories with a generation almost entirely unfamiliar them. And in politics, the media and the arts we’re bringing the Bible to life in fresh, exciting and relevant ways.

We have developed a range of activities and resources in Wales and the Welsh language; find out more here.
