Serving churches and Christian leaders in the Majority World

by equipping them with affordable Bibles and quality evangelical literature.






OPAL Trust has been serving the global church since 2003. We have delivered hundreds of thousands of Bibles and items of quality evangelical literature to church leaders, missionaries and the communities they serve in. It is a privilege and joy to support them in this way and we invite you to join us in this partnership!

The church in the Majority World is growing, yet Bibles and
Christian literature are scarce. It is here that OPAL can make a
real difference. The needs are critical. We invite you to partner with us in responding to the urgent requests for help we receive each week for good quality resources to help build up and equip faithful believers.
