Bible Reading Notes
“The Bible is the prism by which the light of Jesus Christ is broken into its many and beautiful colours.” – John Stott
Just reading can be hard.
Reading a book written by different authors from different historical periods and in different styles can be even harder.
Reading the Bible though is integral to our spiritual growth as a follower of Jesus. That is why we are passionate about helping young people learn how to read the Bible for themselves.
There are amazing resources available today and we have some of our own produced locally with a South African flavour.
A sixty-day teen devotional journey for the new believer and those who need to refresh the foundations of their faith in Jesus.
A thirty-one day children’s (9-12) devotional journey for the new believer.
KHULA FOR KIDS
Khula for Kidz is a magazine aimed at 8 – 12 year olds. It aims to inspire young people with stories of other Christians following God, and teaches them how to read the Bible.
Khula Kids is a Daily Bible Reading Programme that encourages young people to explore God’s Word. They help young people between the ages of 9 and 12 years grow closer to God and be more like Jesus.

CLOSER TO GOD
Closer to God is a tool to help you hear from God each day. Written by a diverse group of woman and men, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, Closer to God will take you through a specific theme or part of Scripture for a week or two. It is non-denominational and covers diverse aspects of the Christian faith community. God invites us to be inspired in our walk with Jesus and service to a world in need. The Bible speaks to all aspects of our lives. Closer to God seeks to be relevant to our continent. The simple, real and honest reflections of our volunteer writers help communicate His truth.
