The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every Bible Society in the world. Most Bible Society offices, Bible book shops and warehouses have had to temporarily close. Projects have had to be suspended until it is once again safe for staff, volunteers and the people who we are reaching. For some Bible Societies this has had a devastating impact on their financial situation.
At this point in time, 88 out of 155 Bible Society offices are at risk of closure. A drop in Bible sales and income mean there is no money to pay staff, run projects or keep doors open. This means there could be 88 nations who will have to cease their projects; Bible Society translation work, distribution of Scripture, literacy and Trauma Healing programmes will all have to stop.
“88 OUT OF 155 BIBLE SOCIETY OFFICES ARE AT RISK OF CLOSURE”
It is for this important reason we have decided to run an additional appeal this year. We appreciate your continued support and thank those who have recently given gifts to Bible work around the world.
Your gift will help Bible Society work keep going around the world. The money raised from this appeal will go towards Bible Societies who desperately need help. We boldly ask that you give generously to help us ensure we can provide everyone with a copy of God’s Word in a format that they can access and understand. Will you help us to stand up for Scripture?
Every gift, no matter what size, will help to keep Bible Societies open and Bible projects running.
Donate to this project:
£20 can provide four people with their own copy of the Bible.
£50 can provide a food parcel and Scripture to a family who is in need.
£150 can help to keep a Bible Society’s doors open to the public.
You can send us your gift by filling out the donation form on the left of this page or by phoning the Bible Society NI office on 028 903 265 77.
Thank you for your support.
