New Zealand distribution
60,257 Bibles and 26,387 New Testaments were distributed in New Zealand in 2010.
Our aim is to share God’s life changing message with as many people as possible.
We do this by distributing Bibles, Scripture portions and other resources and materials throughout New Zealand to individuals, churches, schools, prisons and more.
We serve the whole Christian community and work closely with churches and the community to serve all denominations and confessions.
We have over 2,000 types of Bibles and other Scripture resources in our Wellington warehouse at 144 Tory Street which can be purchased from our shop - including printed media and also Bibles and Scripture resources in other formats, such as on audio cassette, in Braille, on video, on CD-ROM, DVD and MP3 CD.
We distribute all recognised and approved versions of the Bible in English, plus Scriptures in up to 80 different non-English languages to meet the needs of the ever increasing number of different cultures in New Zealand. Our most popular translations include Samoan and other Pacific Island languages, as well as Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai.

More than 365 million Bibles, Testaments and Scripture portions were distributed by Bible Societies worldwide in 2010.
But there are still millions who have no access to God’s life changing message so the need for Bible distribution remains as pressing as ever.
Many Bible Societies are in countries with little or no funding for Bible work and they rely on funds raised in other countries to make it possible. With the help of our New Zealand supporters who partner with us, we’re able to support distribution projects in developing countries everywhere.

Seventy year old Jin can’t stop smiling or singing. She’s walked for three hours in sub-zero temperatures to get to church.
The reason? Today, free Bibles are being given out to the congregation. And she’s got one.
