Help share the Bible

Each Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus – God’s gift to the whole world of love, hope, and new life for all. Here at Lifewords we are passionate about resourcing Christians to share this good news – at Christmas, and all year round.

Give now

From projects in Kenya, to churches in the UK; from creating Bible resources in multiple languages, to responding to the needs of the world around us, we have story after story to tell of how people are being impacted.

Connecting through sport

Take Pastor Salano – church leader, evangelist, and football coach. He runs a football ministry for young people in Nairobi, Kenya, where amateur players, coaches, and potential future football stars can be found on and off the pitch, honing their skills and connecting with others through sport. Lifewords resources are at the heart of this ministry as Pastor Salano and his team build relationships with and mentor these young people.

"We are able to pray with them and encourage them, give them something that they can take home to study and read, and allow God to transform their lives...I am very grateful to Lifewords for offering us great resources that have helped us connect easily with our young people. The resources simple and easy to read and share."

Resourcing churches

Christmas is a key season when Lifewords materials equip and inspire churches to present the story of the nativity.

Advent and Christmas bring the highest attendance in church by the general public beyond the usual congregation,” says Helen, from St Paul’s Church in Macclesfield, UK. “We seize the opportunity to let everybody leave with a booklet as a memento of their visit. At our Toddler Nativity we give out Meet the Cast to each family. Other Lifewords Christmas booklets are given out at other services.

We found OUTSIDE/IN to be so inclusive,” says Naomi, from Christchurch Tunbridge Wells, UK. “Everyone reading it – no matter what their background, life circumstances, or understanding of faith – is welcomed into the Christmas story. There is no Christian jargon, the text is well spaced out with beautiful images. We looked at lots of other options and are really pleased to have chosen OUTSIDE/IN.”

With printed and digital resources, craft activities, and animations for personal reflection, our Christmas range offers something for different contexts and people groups.

Embracing the vision

But it’s not just at Christmas. For 135 years, we’ve been helping churches around the world reach into their communities and share the Bible’s message where, and how, it’s needed most. These churches run food banks, toddler groups, and drop-in centres; they offer welcoming spaces, Bible studies, Sunday services and youth groups. A gift today will help us equip more and more churches in the UK and around the world to reach their local community with the good news of Jesus.

Pastor Salano sums up the difference our work can make:

“We are delighted with [Lifewords], and we thank God for it ... You have been supportive of this ministry by your giving and by your prayer, and through that, our entire team of young people can be reached … We are embracing the vision of reaching out to all the nations with the good news of Jesus Christ because it has the power to change lives.”

Will you join our team and help us resource Pastor Salano and others like him? Your support will help them achieve their “goal” of sharing the Bible with people in their specific contexts?

There are lots of ways to donate to Lifewords Bible-sharing ministry. You can make a one-off gift, a regular standing order or direct debit (which helps us to plan ahead), or even leave us a gift in your Will – for us, each supporter signifies that Bible ministry is still living and active, and vital. If you are not able to donate right now, please do pray for our endeavours. 

Thank you so much for your prayers, support, and encouragement.
