About us

More than 200 years ago people who believed passionately that the Bible had something to say for the whole of humanity founded Bible Society.

Today, we still share that vision. When we read the Bible we find out more about God, more about ourselves and more about the world. That’s why we want to share it.

We invite people to discover the Bible’s message for themselves, even if they’ve never thought the Bible was for them. We want them to read it, be excited by it and find their lives changed by it.

Our work

We believe the Bible is God's gift to the world. We want everyone to discover its message for them. We translate, publish and distribute the Bible, and show its relevance in today’s world. 

Our history

Over 200 years ago a Welsh girl named Mary Jones walked over 26 miles to buy a Bible from Revd Thomas Charles. This act led to the formation of Bible Society.

Our people
