embrace god's word at a time of trial
All of our lives have changed, but that change will look different from one individual to the next. In these times of lockdown, the one thing that remains constant is the truth, urgency and necessity of God’s Word. There are different ways we can engage with these words, and we have provided resources that will help you in your personal devotion as you contemplate the impact of this pandemic, and God’s work through it.
Following the final two Bible 2020 themes, this beautifully produced magazine contains daily Bible readings throughout December as well as reflections and prayers.
These magazines are available for churches and groups to buy in bulk, and can be used within the church, or as something to deliver to your communities over the Advent period.

SHARE GOD'S WORD WITH THE WORLD
Everyone, everywhere speaking the words of the Bible aloud for the whole earth to hear. Record yourself speaking a different verse every day, and share it on the Bible 2020 video wall.
The Bible 2020 app was created as a way to let the global church join together and cover the earth with God’s word. Now, more than ever, there is an opportunity to speak truths aloud, and encourage one another. While we can’t physically meet, the Bible 2020 app can show us that God’s word is still been spoken in towns and cities across the world.
Be part of this global movement, and encourage friends and family to join in too by sharing your videos via social media and instant messaging.
the outspoken bible
In this accompaniment to the Bible 2020 app, we join friends Fiona Stewart, Neil Glover and Jen Robertson as they catch up online and chat about the Bible verses they are reading using the Bible 2020 app. In these troubled times, how does the Bible speak to us? And how do we respond to God’s word during this time of lockdown?

SUpPORT our global mission
Since 1809 we’ve been committed to spreading the life-changing Word of God. Generation after generation has helped to translate, produce and distribute Bibles. We want to continue this important work of putting the Bible into people’s hands and hearts but can only do this with your help.
With the pandemic restricting the way we meet, it is also changing the way we fundraise. We have designed new resources to help you raise funds for Scottish Bible Society. They are simple, fun, and easy to organise even during these times of changing restrictions.
