engage with the bible in 2022

The last two years have changed lives across the world. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we have created resources to help you connect with, engage with, and love God’s Word. Because now, as much as ever, the Bible shines a light in the darkness, brings hope in times of despair, and shows us the God who created all things, and wants us to know Him.

embrace god's word

The challenges in the last two years have looked different from one individual to the next. In the midst of the upheaval, 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.

An End to the Darkness is a 10-part series which explores some of the complex but timely themes of suffering from the book of Job. A printed study guide has been created to accompany the audio drama.

Throughout this year, we’re encouraging the Scottish church to be part of Bible 2020, a global movement of people speaking the words of the Bible for the whole earth to hear. Even when we aren’t able to meet up with our church, Bible 2020 connects us with the local and the global church community.


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?
