The People’s Bible is coming to Orkney

The People’s Bible — marking the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible — is coming to Orkney on Wednesday, August 10.

For four months, people across the country are being invited to write out two verses of the Bible onto paper with a digital pen. This pen connects to www.thepeoplesbible.org website and within one minute those handwritten verses will be visible there.

Orkney Islands Council convener Councillor Stephen Hagan will start the event at 10am on the Kirk Green. Folk are invited to go along and write two verses, either from the King James Bible or The Good News Bible.

The main “scribe pod” will be located at the front of St Magnus Cathedral from 10am-4pm and there will also be “satellite scribe stations” at the Stromness harbour area (10am-4pm), St Ann’s Kirk, Papay (10am-11.30am), and Westray Parish Kirk (2.30pm-5pm).
