What is Bring Your Bible to School Day?

Bring Your Bible to School Day is a nationwide, student-led movement to read and treasure Scripture as God’s Holy Word, to encourage others with the hope we have in Christ Jesus, and to celebrate our faith in New Zealand. It all culminates with Bring Your Bible to School Day on the first Thursday of October. (This year, the celebration will be October 21, 2021!) This event empowers Christian students of all ages to speak God’s grace and truth into the culture around them, starting with two simple steps — bringing their Bibles to school and sharing what God’s Word means to them.

Students of any age can participate – remember the words of 1 Timothy 4:12: “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity” .

Is it fun?

Yes! Bring Your Bible is designed to be a creative expression of your faith, which flows from the joy and hope we all have in Jesus. The buildup to Bring Your Bible to School Day includes activities, games, acts of service, and personalised ways to get into God’s Word and learn what it means to you. The Bible is full of events and people you may not even know! So get ready to discover something new.
