Community Bible Study started as the result of an answer to prayer. Over 500 people registered for the first class in 1975 to study the Gospel of John and classes began to spread. 1979 saw the first UK class start in London, the result of an answer to the prayers of Campus Crusade.

A little later the second International class was started in Peru followed by Canada. Since then the ministry has grown and is now active in over 82 countries with over 150,000 members. This does not include the USA where there are now over 700 very large classes (approx.) with an additional thriving work in prisons as well as teen and children’s work.

There are now nearly 100 classes in England, Scotland and Wales, over 12 in Ireland and many classes developing throughout Europe. The studies have now been translated into over 60 languages.

We thank God for the blessing that Community Bible Study has been to us in Europe, giving us a wonderful tool with which to share God’s transforming love for humanity with our friends and neighbours. As we continue to grow, we would like to offer this to many more people in our diverse communities in Europe.
