Scripture Grants

The generous financial support of God’s faithful people over many years has enabled Bible Society Australia to fund front line gospel ministries at home in Australia and internationally.

Bible Society’s Scripture Grants Programme provides Bibles to partner ministries in Australia that receive no direct support from a denomination or church and whose work is to engage people with the Bible through ongoing relationships. This includes ministries in prisons, hospitals, ports, military bases and training centre's, scripture classes in schools, with refugees, the homeless, poor, those learning English, those struggling with addictions and many more.

Our three major scripture grants programmes are:

  • Bibles in Schools (BIS grant)
  • Australian Defence Force (ADF grant)
  • Chaplains and para-church organisations (C&P grant)

With the ongoing generous support of our donors, Bible Society Australia continues to place Bibles in the hands of workers in these front line ministries to pass on to thousands of people across Australia every year.  Together we champion the Bible to share the love of Jesus.

Bibles in Schools Scripture Grant

If you are a scripture teacher or co-ordinator in a public school, you can apply for a class set of Bibles to assist in your scripture lessons. These Bibles are kept as a class set and used in lessons over many years.  Primary school scripture teachers receive Big Rescue CEV Bibles while high school scripture teachers receive Youth CEV Bibles.

Scripture teachers of students up to and including year 3 may also apply for a set of Jesus Storybook borrow Bibles to share with their class.
