We live in a world where too many people don’t engage with the Bible.
In some parts of the world, the Scriptures are difficult to access or are simply unavailable. In this country, the Bible is readily available but has lost its significance and its value is unrecognised by millions.
We’re working hard here at home and in key areas across the world to change this. We take the Bible and find ways to translate and distribute it, create digital formats, advocate for its place in society and help people relate to and make sense of it in their everyday lives.
All our efforts are driven by one conviction: we believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good.
In these challenging times, it’s a great encouragement to hear good news about Bible ministry around the world. Last week, Progress.bible announced that the number of languages with a full Bible translation has topped 700, meaning around 80 per cent of the world’s population – just over 5.7 billion people – can now read God’s word in their mother tongue.
The Bible Society network plays a huge part in the task of not only translating but also distributing the Bible and promoting literacy so people can read it. Over the last five years, an incredible 1.8 billion Scriptures, including more than 184 million full Bibles, have been distributed worldwide.

As we start back meeting together, while in a socially distanced way, we want to start back expecting great things.The story of the woman who meets Jesus at the well in John 4 has shaped our vision.We want Lifewell Church to be a place where people can meet Jesus and have their relationship with God restored, their lives transformed, their questions answered and be set free to be the person that God created them to be.In John 4:14, Jesus said “Whoever drinks the water I give them will never be thirsty.Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life”.
As we gather let’s expect Jesus to meet with us, to refresh, satisfy and cause an overflow welling up to eternal life in us and those around us!Let’s give God our past, our hurts, our questions and allow Him to heal, comfort and teach us, setting us free to be the children of God and the witnesses that he created us to be and gave his life to make possible.
Come to the well!!!
Know the Saviour of the world!!!
Make a Difference!
