Interested in Membership?
Our objective is to introduce others to the Lord Jesus Christ by placing, presenting and/or distributing Scriptures in many different areas of life, most often Testaments, which include the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs, but also copies of the full Bible.
We have local branches all across the UK to connect with to joyfully take part in sharing the Gospel in your local area.
Join your nearby branch visiting local...
“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth...”
The highest number of Testaments distributed annually is Youth Testaments, either through a school assembly talk or through Religious Education lessons.
A school assembly talk offers the opportunity to encourage pupils to accept a Testament, to inspire them to read it, and to show them how to use it. More recently, in many schools, we are now being asked to take Religious Education lessons.
A special training programme to help members involved in school lessons to be confident in delivering teaching in accordance with the national curriculum, has been developed by NATRE (National Association of Teachers of Religious Education) with additional school assembly presentations.
"I'm in year 7 and a couple of months ago we were given the red 'New Testament and Psalms’. I looked into the 'Where To Find Help' page and I found exactly what I was feeling.
Even though I hate to admit it, I was close to suicide but it really did help. When I felt like I had nowhere to turn and nobody to speak to I had God.”
Colleges and Universities
We offer College Testaments to students at University and College Fresher Fairs or through ‘pavement distribution’.
“Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.”
Testaments are placed at hospital bedsides and may be hard or soft cover or even shrink wrapped if required. Testaments are available for presentation to medical and other hospital staff.
“Last week I found myself in hospital for a hip replacement operation. I am not brave and was very anxious indeed.
As I waited to be called for surgery; I looked in the bedside cabinet and finding a Bible, started to read the notes at the front. I was immediately very comforted. I remain very thankful indeed for the help I received that day.”
We believe that great comfort and support can be found in these Bibles, especially for those in our Emergency Services who often experience very difficult and challenging situations in their work life.
In recent years, over 60 branches of the Emergency Services have accepted Bibles with their own crest on the front cover.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Sports Chaplaincy UK to provide sports clubs of all kinds with Bibles for their players and staff, printed with the club’s badge on the front. With the club’s permission, and in conjunction with the Club Chaplain, we are pleased to have been able to support over 100 UK sports clubs so far in this way.
We offer badged testaments to these youth clubs:
- Girl's Brigade
- Boy's Brigade
- Fire Cadets
- Police Cadets
- St. John Ambulance
- Air Cadets
- Army Cadets Force
For many years we have been actively involved in work in prisons. Testaments are presented to prison officers, prison staff and prisoners.
“Remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison.”
Bibles are provided for prison cells. Members often visit prisons to support Sunday morning services, conduct Bible studies and to help in many other ways.
As well as placing Bibles in hotels, we also put them in guest houses, AirBnB's, holiday homes, cruise liners, medical waiting rooms and legal offices.
Reading the Bibles we provide, including the unique section at the beginning which gives help and guidance for many circumstances in life.
Care Homes and Residential Homes
Large and Ultra Giant Print Testaments are available for those with sight impairments and are often placed in Care and Residential Homes.
Maybe you don’t feel you have the time available at present to participate in any of the above activities, but would you be willing to always be ready to share a copy of God’s Word with those you come in contact with on a regular basis?
Personal witnessing can be challenging and daunting but, when we are open to God, He will empower us to take advantage of the opportunities He gives us to share our faith in Him with others.
People will occasionally refuse our offer of a Testament, but most people are happy to take one. Some people even ask for the complete Bible. Large Print and Ultra Giant Print Testaments are available for witnessing to people with sight impairments.
‘My Commitment’ pages are found at the back of most Testaments. It may be that you will feel led by the Lord to guide the person through these pages sharing with them the way of salvation and leading them towards a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When we share our faith in this way, we pray that God, by His Holy Spirit, will speak into that person's life as they read the Testament, that they will find the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour and find a local church, fellowship, etc, that will help them grow as a Christian.
We are being faithful to the Lord’s command:
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”
