The Bible Society
Bible Society was established in 1804 by a group of people including William Wilberforce and Thomas Charles to encourage the ‘wider circulation and use’ of the Scriptures.
We’re still working on this mission today. We believe that the Bible is an extraordinary collection of books, worth reading and part of the solution to today’s big issues.
We make Scriptures available where there are none. We help the churches use and teach them. And we try to promote the Bible through the arts, education, media and politics.

The Passion Trust is a registered charity that exists to support and promote performances of passion plays and biblical drama around the United Kingdom. These plays are new and exciting aspects of Easter celebrations and a growing number of Passion Plays are being performed across the United Kingdom, including Trafalgar Square, Glasgow, Dundee, Guildford, Northampton, Bolton, Leominster and Brighton.
Together these performances attract crowds of people in the thousands and they are regularly featured in national and regional newspapers. They are fitting performances during Easter to focus attention on the real reason behind the eggs and chocolate: Jesus’ death and resurrection, which is the centre of the Christian faith and hope.
