What could be more worth championing than God’s word? There are many voices and sources of information clamouring for dominance in our world. Many appeals for trust, many sources of authority, many claims for respect, many causes to champion. Yet, what is more worthy to be elevated than the Bible, God’s word of revelation to mankind? In partnership with you, Bible Society is speaking and acting, in Australia and around the world, to recommend, defend, and champion the truth, beauty and goodness of the Bible.
You make it possible for us to champion the Bible in countries around the world who desperately need the truth of God’s word, the revelation of his unconditional love and care. You make it possible for us to champion the Bible in our own changing culture, in the media, at universities and schools, as well as through our digital and publishing channels, to point to the relevance of Christianity today and always.
Living in a culture resistant to God's word, we need your support to continue this vital work to reach all people through advocacy.
Current projects underway
Part of Bible Society Australia, Centre for Public Christianity (CPX) works diligently to advocate for the Bible in our country. CPX exists to promote the public understanding of the Christian faith to secular Australians. Launched in 2007, CPX seeks to engage the public with a clear, measured, and respectful picture of the Christian faith and the way it can impact all of life for the good. The CPX team aims to ‘drop the drawbridge’ and walk into the public square confident that Christianity still has something vital to say about life’s biggest questions.
Part of Bible Society Australia, Eternity seeks to highlight “seriously Good News”, the work God is doing in Australia, from stories of people coming to faith, stories that tell of the resilience of churches, and new ways in which Christians are salt and light in our nation and overseas. These stories can be told in print, through the internet, and in the booming area of podcasts – easy listening but with in-depth stories.
Through your ongoing support, each year we champion the Bible among Australian youth, calling in a panel of experts and running youth Masterclass events, at which students are given the opportunity to explore contemporary issues from a Biblical perspective, and to ask searching questions about the Christian faith.
In the Middle East, where complex political and religious tensions, widespread poverty, and various conflicts make life challenging, Bible Society is championing the ongoing presence and work of the Arab-Israeli Bible Society, who, with your support, serve the Arab-Israeli community with Scripture resources and interactive community events.
For the first time, the Vietnamese government has given permission to establish the first Christian library in Vietnam. Through your support, a library will be made available to Christians in Vietnam who desperately desire to have access to Biblical resources.

If the appeal is oversubscribed or the project changes due to unforeseen reasons, we will reallocate remaining funds to similar projects.
