During WW1, the Bible’s life words brought hope to millions of Service men and women. Lifewords distributed 43 million Active Service John’s Gospels, designed to fit into the pocket of a soldier or sailor’s tunic. Many drew solace and even found faith, turning to God in times of desperation. These same life words continue to bring comfort today.
Lifewords is resourcing people with free copies of WW1 Active Service St John's Gospels, prayer cards, and short films and we're inviting you to help communities explore God's peace that is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago.
When we first received a copy of WW1 Active Service St John’s Gospel it provided us with peace and assurance, and rekindled memories of those in the war who would have turned to this booklet for strength and comfort in their hour of need.
