Take the 21-day Bible Reading Challenge

The Bible is Hope! Bringing this Hope is one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone in despair.   

Unfortunately, there are still millions of people around the world needing to receive this Hope because the Bible is either unaffordable or unavailable in their language.

This July, you can help change this by taking the 21-Day Bible Reading Challenge.

Every $15 you raise will place a Bible into someone's hands and sow the seed of Eternal Hope into their heart! 

Become a Hope Sower today!

How it works

Sign up for Read for Bibles as an individual, team or church and get your own fundraising page.

Share your fundraising page with your friends, family and church to help raise funds for Bible mission (you can also give to someone who has already joined!).

Complete the 21-Day Bible Reading Challenge during July using the Reflections on Hope devotional we provide for you.

Continue to spread the word on social media using the prewritten text and images and videos we provide for you!

Watch the Hope you will be sowing

As all the funds you raise will go towards the global mission of Bible Society NZ to help make the Bible accessible to everyone and encouraging interaction with it, you will be spreading the good news of the gospel around the world and bringing Hope to those who need it most – such as those currently affected by the war in Ukraine.

See the lengths our colleagues in Ukraine are going to, during the current war, to deliver the ‘living bread’ to those desperately seeking it!

Draw closer to God

At Bible Society NZ, July is the month we set aside to raise up the place of the Bible in New Zealand – that is why we call it 'Bible Month'.

By joining Read for Bibles, we pray you’ll be nourished and transformed through the Reflections on Hope devotional that you will receive for the 21-Day Bible Reading Challenge. You can also access this devotional on the YouVersion Bible App.

We hope that, through this, you will be building a Bible engagement habit that lasts a lifetime, so that you may continue to draw closer to God and receive guidance from His Word as you navigate through the challenges of life.  

Gather your own team of Hope Sowers

If your church, school, small group, ministry or organisation would like to participate in Read for Bibles as your own fundraising team, then you can! That way all the funds raised by your Hope Sowers will be combined into your overall team total!

Simply register as an individual and then use the option to create a team - we will send you instructions too!
