Richard and the PCC plan for us to buy new Bibles to be used in church as part of our Jubilee celebrations. The ones we use at present are the original New International Version, produced in 1978. Since then there have been some minor changes. In 2011 a new revision was published; this has been used at St Andrew's for some special services as, for example, at Christmas, where the readings have been printed. The chief difference is in the use of more inclusive language e.g. "brothers and sisters" etc. Apart from that, some alterations have been made to facilitate the flow of the language.
A sample of the one we plan to buy is on the café table. Please feel free to give us any feedback. George Redgrave
