Make your mark with the People’s Bible

11-2.30 pm, Thursday 23 June, Market Hill, Sudbury.

From Andrew Stewart-Darling.

To celebrate 400 years of the King James Bible a unique opportunity is coming to Market Hill, Sudbury on Thursday 23 June.

As part of a national tour, The People’s Bible (www.thepeoplesbible.org) gives a golden chance to have a part in writing the entire Bible by hand – starting at the book of Genesis, right through to the book of Revelation.

The Church will be out there on Farmers’ Market Day with a gazebo and pop-up banners to encourage passers-by to make their mark.

Each person will get to write at least two verses.

The project is unique because everyone who chooses to write a verse will be asked to do so with a digital pen. So there’ll be a new paper copy of the Bible and also an online archive of everyone’s verses to show friends.

You are invited to come along and make your mark, along with shoppers and workers in Sudbury that day.

The project begins at Edinburgh Castle on 19 June 2011, the anniversary of the birth of King James VI/I at the castle in 1566. It will end at Westminster Abbey on 16 November 2011 at a service attended by Her Majesty The Queen.

It is a great way to reconnect people with the Bible and affect our community, but it needs a team. Are you able to spare an hour to be part of this special day? If so, please contact Ruth Woodman at Stour Valley Vineyard Church: ruthwoodman@waitrose.com. Alternatively, you can contact the SVV Church Office at: office@stourvalleyvineyard.org.

The People’s Bible is a joint venture between Bible Society in England and Wales and the Scottish Bible Society.
