About Us

The Word is a Bible Society New Zealand initiative.

From busy city streets to war-torn overseas villages, Bible Society strives to make the Bible available and alive so that all people may experience its life-changing message.

In some parts of the world, the Bible is difficult to access or is simply unavailable. In New Zealand, the Bible is readily available but many people are unaware of its value.

We work in New Zealand and in partnership with Bible Societies around the world to address this. We take the Bible and find ways to translate and distribute it, create digital formats, advocate for its place in society, and help people relate to and make sense of it in their everyday lives.

All our efforts are driven by one conviction: we believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change–for good. This is why we created The Word.

Bible Society’s Mission
