ENGAGING IN BIBLE TRANSLATION, ADVOCACY AND LITERACY SINCE 1806

The Bible Society exists to bring the Word of God  to all people, in a language they understand, in an appropriate form, and at a price each one can afford.

“How do people progress from despair to hope? Can we safely confront pain and in that space begin to see a glimmer of a new beginning? How does the process of ‘lament’ aid this journey? These questions and more will be unpacked as we explore Daring to Hope: Experiencing the Grace of Lament – a beautiful resource created by our colleagues at the Bible Society in Northern Ireland.
Through combinations of video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection, and more, Daring to Hope: Experiencing the Grace of Lament will take participants on a journey through Scripture, to encounter, practically explore, and own in our lives, the four elements of lament so often present:
  1. Turning to God
  2. Bringing our complaint
  3. Asking boldly for help
  4. Daring to hope (trust) in God
Advent, traditionally a time of hope in the darkness, may seem like an unusual time to unpack the idea of lament. But it is precisely because lament can give us the tools to hope again and inspires resilience and courage that we felt this season was appropriate to explore this theme.”

The National Bible Society of Ireland is passionate about stories – human stories and the stories which form the biblical narratives, and finding the places where these stories meet

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 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.

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.
