Bridge-Builders is a marketing name of The Pocket Testament League in the UK. We are an Evangelical Christian organisation dedicated to helping Christians share their faith.
Who We Are
Since 1893, The Pocket Testament League has motivated Christians to read, carry, and share the Word of God. The Pocket Testament League provides resources to help believers develop a lifestyle of biblical discipline and personal evangelism.
Our members have shared more than 110 million Gospels during the history of this Christian outreach ministry, forever changing millions of lives around the world.
Our vision is to recruit 100,000 volunteer members to pledge to read the Bible daily, to carry a Gospel of John in a dedicated pocket (backpack, purse, jacket, etc) everywhere they go, and to wait for God to give them an opportunity to share it.
If only we can get people to read the book [the Bible] for themselves, it will surely lead them to Christ.
– Charles Alexander
Sparked by the vision of a young girl named Helen Cadbury in 1863, who simply wanted to share her faith with her friends, The Pocket Testament League has reached and equipped thousands of Christians to share their faith, one to one.
The same vision to see lost souls come to Christ still drives the Bridge-Builders’ ministry today. Learn more about our history.
Bridge-Builders itself only works in the UK and because of copyright restrictions our materials can’t be sent outside of the UK. However, we have sister organisations in other countries including Australia, Thailand, India, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Canada and the USA. Learn more about our sister organisations
