Biblefresh is a partnership of over fifty organisations (including LICC, where I work), joining forces to help Christians and churches grow in our appetite and confidence in the Scriptures during 2011 (coinciding with the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible). The initiative hopes to offer a host of ideas and resources to inspire and equip people, churches and local communities to read, study, meditate, listen, learn and live the Bible.

The venture will be supported by a website (from January 2010 onwards), where it is possible to register your interest by signing up for regular updates.

There are ten events happening around the UK in the early part of next year to share the vision of Biblefresh with church leaders. Get to one if you can.
