About Us

Established in Sydney in 1817, we have always been closely tied to the leadership of the nation, with governors, business leaders and senior clergy featuring in the Society’s history.

Bible Society Australia’s activities take place as part of the United Bible Societies, a global network operating across 200 countries and territories. We are one of the most extensive mission groups in the world and do our work in partnership with churches, providing resources and Bible-focused campaigns and community programmes.

In return, we enjoy the support of churches across all denominations and partner with other organisations in areas of publishing, literacy development (such as UNESCO) and youth Bible engagement.
