New Bibles for St Anne’s
The Bibles in the Church of St Anne are past their use by date and need to be replaced. The NIV (1984) translation is no longer available and so we need to replace the Bibles in the Auditorium as well. The Auditorium Bibles will be donated to Macquarie Anglican Church to replace their Bibles that have been affected by an asbestos incident. We have purchased the “updated” version of the NIV (NIV 2011) and these will be placed in the church and auditorium in July. You may wish to purchase your own copy of the new translation – we can order these for you for $11 (standard print) or $25 (large print). To order these put your money in an envelope with your name and “Bible Order” clearly marked and place this in the offering. For the story behind the translation of the NIV go to Bible Gateway
