Bibles for Schools

Over the last four years we have made available over 250,000 free Bibles & Gospels, for Public School Ministry.

Bringing the ‘Forgotten Story’ back to the minds of students

For many of the 2.3 million public school students across Australia, God’s Story found in the Bible is amazingly a new story.  No one has ever shown them how wonderful the Bible really is.  In some public schools, religious classes or presentations have not occurred for decades.

Bible Society Australia is committed to bringing God’s story in the Bible to the children of Australia, through relevant religious school based programs.  You can join us in this important work by supporting us in the following ways:

Children’s Programs

Our team of dedicated school workers bring the Bible to life, through song, games, animation and story telling.  They help children to see that the Bible is worth reading and make thousands of Gospels available for those who would like to read the Bible for themselves. For more info please contact us here.

Bible Distribution

We are continually encouraged at the teams of dedicated public school ministry teachers who each week bring God’s Story to public school children.  But they are always in need of more Bibles.

‘I just wanted to write a note of gratitude to the Bible Society for the Bibles for Schools we took delivery of last week. Our Scripture teachers are delighted and excited that they now have classroom sets of full Bibles to use in their SRE lessons. The children just love reading the Bibles for themselves and it changes the dynamic of the lessons’ Rev. Greg Bruggemann

‘Thanks again for the Bibles! It is so great to get a Bible in front of each child in our SRE classes so they can read God’s word for themselves and learn to navigate their way around the Bible. Many thanks’ Gai Aylward
