Help Open The Bible
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Bible Society Australia. Volunteers are the backbone of Australia’s charity sector.
At BSA our mission is to Open The Bible To All People Everywhere By All Means Possible. We cannot do this on our own. Will you help us and become a Bible Society Australia volunteer?
As a volunteer we will equip you to tell others about Bible Society’s breadth of work and its resources. We are committed to enabling you with information and training to support you as you enthusiastically represent us in your church and community.
We hope that you will join us and become part of Bible Society Australia Volunteers family!
What impact will you have as a volunteer?
Open the bible
As a volunteer you'll be able to actively help those in your community and around the world Open The Bible through our many projects, products and events that assist in Bible distribution, translation, publication, engagement and advocacy.
Unite in Prayer
We know that we have a God who desires and listens to our prayers and they never go unanswered. Join us as we pray for the many needs that surround Bible Society's work here and abroad when you receive the monthly prayer letters.
Whether you're promoting Bible Society in your church, helping to run an event or assisting us with administrative tasks or fundraising - know that every act helps change lives all over the world from China, to Africa, to right here in Australia.
How will we support you?
Education & Training
As you step out to volunteer, we will ensure you are fully equipped with everything you need to know in order to serve. Every volunteer is walked through our short induction and training process to enable them to know and promote the work of Bible Society and make a difference.
Once you've been trained, we will provide you with the tools to be an effective volunteer. We'll equip you with both digital and physical resources to support you in your work as you endeavour to Open The Bible to those in your community.
As a volunteer you will be part of a community of staff and volunteers who are all dedicated to the same mission. Every volunteer is connected into a local branch based in your region and given access to our online volunteer portal.
Leigh and Helen
We have run and taken part in an annual Bike for Bibles event in Victoria for many years to raise awareness and funds for Bible mission work, and particularly Bible-based literacy classes. We have served in the church for many years and are passionate about people coming to know Christ; and remain passionate riders who want the Bike for Bibles event to grow as we believe it’s a mission worth riding for.
I have been involved as a volunteer in Bible Society events in Geelong, western suburbs of Melbourne, and over Zoom. The work of Bible Society is so important. Having access to the Bible is a huge part of faith and I’m so grateful that I’ve always had access to such an amazing resource. I pray that in the years to come less reached people will have the same opportunity to hear about God’s love and discover for themselves the beauty of a relationship with him. God is simply amazing and together we have a responsibility to share him with our communities.
