Bible for Bairns

Share the Bible with children in Scotland

Almost 3 in 10 children don’t know that the story of Jesus’ birth is from the Bible.*

We want to give Scotland’s children the opportunity to hear Bible stories from the first year of their lives.

That’s why we’re launching ‘Bibles for Bairns’ - a programme to give a Bible to babies born in Scotland in 2023.

Will you help us bring the Bible to children in Scotland?

‘Bibles for Bairns’ encourages parents, carers and their children to bond through reading the Bible together, and to develop a foundation for faith in Jesus.

How it works


The child will receive a Share a Story Bible on their first birthday.


Each year, we’ll send birthday cards and resources to help them engage with their Bible.


When they turn five, they’ll receive a children’s Bible to explore with the adults in the family, and on their own as they start to read themselves.
