Due to demand, the deadline for orders for New Testaments to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has been extended.
A number of Connor parishes have already ordered the New Testaments which have been commissioned b the Church of England.
They are to be distributed at schools, churches, street parties and other Diamond Jubilee events.
The Bibles come in two designs – the Union Jack and the Royal Arms – and a pack of 50 copies cost just £25.
The Bible includes eight pages of images from the Coronation and the Queen’s life, linking her 60 year reign and her Christian faith. There is a suggested reading section with Bible references on various topics, and a clear guide for readers.
Parishes are urged to give as many of these Bibles away as possible as the nation celebrates.
A Service to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee will be held in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, at 11am on Sunday June 3. Further details will be available closer to the time.
