About IBRA

The International Bible Reading Association (IBRA) has been in existence for over 130 years and is part of Christian Education. It serves the church in five continents and aims to help Christians around the world to read the Bible daily and with understanding. We do this by publishing Bible reading schemes and notes and by funding organisations in developing countries through our International Fund.

If you wish to learn more about IBRA, it's rich history or the international reach of IBRA then please visit our new IBRA Website www.ibraglobal.org. Whilst there, please consider making a donation to help in this important work. You can do this via the 'Donate' button at the top of this page.


Each year, IBRA produces a scheme of daily Bible readings which forms the basis for all IBRA's publications. It includes readings from the gospel for the year from the Revised Common Lectionary, continuous readings from several books of the Bible, plus Old and New Testament readings on a variety of topical themes.

Starting in 2014, IBRA has a new series of Bible reading notes, entitled Fresh From the Word: The Bible for a Change. Our Editor Nathan Eddy has brought together contributions from 50 creative writers around the world to offer notes on 365 daily readings, together with prayers and suggestions for action.

The full reading scheme for 2015 are available as free PDF downloads in English, French and Spanish.

You can also access the full reading scheme for 2014 in English, French and Spanish.
