Join Bible Society Australia on the adventure of a lifetime in China! Over 9 unforgettable days, you will trek the Great Wall and visit rural Chinese villages in the shadow of otherworldly mountains. Best of all, with every kilometre you cover, you will help provide Bibles to the exponentially growing number of Christians in China.
Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most impressive accomplishments. As part of this challenge, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Over five days, you will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Swapping the majesty of the Great Wall for the hustle and bustle of a great city, you’ll explore the contrasting personality of Beijing. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
You will also have the very special opportunity to visit the headquarters of the world’s largest Bible printing company, Amity Printing, where millions of Bibles get printed each year. It’s bound to be an unforgettable experience.
Together, we can make the most of this present opportunity and help the Church in China print more Bibles for the millions of Chinese Christians who need the word for their faith and nurture.
For the last three decades, Bible Society has been raising funds to provide Bibles to the exponentially growing church in China. Since the establishment of Amity Printing Company in 1987, 80 million Bibles have been printed for internal distribution in China. These Bibles have been distributed through local churches, an avenue that remains open to this day.
The funds raised through the Bible Society Australia Great Wall of China Trek 2019 will supply Bible paper to the Amity Printing Company and significantly reduce the cost of printing. These subsidised Bibles are then sold or given away to those for whom the cost of a Bible would otherwise be a considerable financial burden.
Nothing short of extraordinary, you will also have the very special opportunity to visit Amity Printing Company and see the distribution of Bibles on your challenge and witness firsthand, the incredible impact your fundraising efforts will make.
This is a great need as 70% of the country’s believers belong to China’s rural poor, and for them, the cost of a Bible is approximately equal to a day’s wage. Together, we can make the most of this present opportunity and print more Bibles for the millions of Chinese Christians who need the word for their faith and nurture.
- $40 supplies urgently needed paper for 20 Bibles
- $80 can buy enough paper to print 40 subsidised Bibles for Christians in China
- $120 could provide a free Bible to 10 people in China who normally could not afford one
