Help your church grasp the need for Bible translation – run a NoBibleSunday event

Thank you for your interest in promoting the work of Bible translation. We have developed a resource for churches who would like to help their congregations to understand what it is like not to have the Bible in your language. It is based around the central idea of members of your church experiencing what it might be like not to have a Bible in English.

We’ve called the event ‘NoBibleSunday’ and it can be run at a church service or for smaller groups.

We have two objectives for NoBibleSunday events:

To challenge what we take for granted – a Bible in our own language  we hope that we can encourage a renewed gratitude and passion for the word of God in our lives.

To highlight the critical need for 1 in 5 people across the world to have the word of God in their own language, so that they might know for themselves the wonderful message of the gospel.

Some of the materials are available directly from this page. Or you can get the entire digital pack emailed to you by filling out the form below.

The pack contains all you should need to promote and run a successful event. It has been designed so that you can pick and choose the elements that will work for you and your congregation.

It includes:

  • An overview and introduction to running a NoBibleSunday event
