The Gideons International in the British Isles


Through the distribution of Bibles and/or Testaments in many different walks of life – Schools, Hotels, Hospitals, Universities, Colleges, Prisons, to name just a few examples – The Gideons provide a Book which provides an ethical and moral code for society, which gives guidance in life, offers comfort in times of sorrow and loss, inspiration, and deals with many of the issues that people of all ages, nationalities, ethnic and social backgrounds face on a day to day basis.

In placing and presenting Bibles and/or Testaments, the achievement of the object of the Association, as stated in its Constitution, which is to win men and women for the Lord Jesus Christ, is often evidenced as being achieved through the many letters, emails, and telephone calls of testimony received in National Office, by individual Gideon and Auxiliary members and by branches. Many of these testimonies are regularly printed in Gideon News, the official publication of The Gideons International in the British Isles and posted on the Association’s website.
