Distributing the Bible to those who were without one was the primary motivating factor in forming Bible Society in Australia in 1817 and has been our central concern in the centuries which have followed.
Our country, and our world, has changed a lot in the intervening years, but the need to distribute copies of God’s word in whatever format is accessible to people has not.
With your support, Bible Society provides Bibles and other Bible products to people both overseas and in Australia, many of whom have never owned their own Bible.
You can play a pivotal role in sharing God's word with those who cannot afford one and don't have access to the Scriptures.
Current projects underway
Your support enables Bible Society to partner with servants of God ministering to those in need across Australia - in the defence forces, in Indigenous communities and other places - and to distribute free Bibles and Scripture materials through their capable and loving hands.
We are committed to helping the dedicated public school Scripture teachers in public schools where classes are still permitted; your support means that these children can be provided with free class sets of Bibles, so they can read God’s word for themselves.
South Africa has one of the highest numbers of prisoners in the world. Prisons are severely overcrowded. Inmates are from violent street gangs and many have never known love and forgiveness. But it is possible to place hope in the hands and hearts of people who are hardened.
The Biblical Discipleship Program, supported by you, teaches inmates in 200 prisons about God’s love and helps with their practical rehabilitation. When they finish the program, inmates are given the gift of a Bible.
Children from disadvantaged and marginalized backgrounds are not able to access the Bible as their parents or guardians cannot afford one. Through your support, we will distribute God's word and create a momentum of change towards Bible reading and consequently lay a foundation for Biblical values for the Kenyan society.

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