Julia McKinley is the Development Officer for the NBSI, (National Bible Society of Ireland), which has global as well as local links in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The United Bible Societies are a historical network of biblical societies which traditionally focus on bible translation and making the biblical texts accessible and available to all, and have a range of exciting current national and international projects.

‘Encounter’ – Engaging with Scripture is an encounter on multiple levels. It is an encounter with the Word of God, an encounter with the community who form an integral part of these Scriptures, an encounter with the generations gone by whose voices have interpreted these texts over and over again, and an encounter with the deepest parts of ourselves as we connect something living within us to what is living within these Scriptures.


In Ireland the National Bible Society works with all Christian Churches and with individuals providing Bible resources, simple guides, Scripture studies, help and expertise. We want everyone to know and understand the Word of God.

The National Bible Society of Ireland, in conjunction with the worldwide body of United Bible Societies, provides an invaluable and vital service to local communities on an international scale. Its heritage of translation and bible dissemination and its vision to make Scripture accessible and available to all is one which is surely relevant across the divides of time, politics, economics and culture.

In Ireland, we raise money to fund translation, production and distribution of God’s Word in other countries. There are over 6,000 languages in the world but in nearly three-quarters of these languages there is no Bible translation.

The Bible Society believes that everyone should have easy access to the Holy Scriptures in their own languages. It is our task to bring the Scriptures to all people every-where.


You can help us to help others. Your support is needed to develop our work in Ireland. We need even more help to fund the vital translation and distribution network that will bring the Bible to everyone, to every place where people live. This is made possible by working together in the worldwide fellowship of the United Bible Societies. We seek your help to bring the Holy Scriptures to the furthest ends of the earth.

The National Bible Society of Ireland is interconfessional, working with all Christian Churches. This is reflected in our Membership, National Board and staff.
