About Bible Society

Bible Society enable supporters to offer the Bible, the world’s best seller, to everyone through translating, producing and distributing the Scriptures and through literacy, engagement and advocacy projects.

The story of Bible Society stretches back to the 1800s and its founding revolves around three remarkable, yet markedly different, individuals: Mary Jones - a determined Welsh girl, Reverend Joseph Hughes - a visionary Welsh pastor, and William Wilberforce - a campaigning MP.

Since then, the Bible Society have been working for more than 200 years to offer the Bible to the world. Their efforts have won admiration from royalty, from Edward VII through to the current monarch, Elizabeth II. Their work has survived through the unfolding events of two world wars and persevered to find openings in Communist Russia and the Cultural Revolution of China.

They have established local Bible Societies in 146 counties around the world.
