YEAR OF THE BIBLE

 

YEAR OF THE BIBLE COVER Eng strip

 

The Bible Society of South Africa celebrates its bicentenary this year. It marks 200 years of Bible work in South Africa – two centuries of providing affordable Bibles for everyone in their own language and in different formats to the people of South Africa.

As part of our birthday celebrations, we want to ask all churches to celebrate 2020 as a Year of the Bible.
