We are honoured that Her Majesty The Queen is the Patron of the Scottish Bible Society.
This year, Her Majesty celebrates her 90th birthday and we are delighted to send our loyal greetings to wish Her Majesty a happy birthday and our commitment to uphold her in our prayers.
To mark this special occasion, you may be interested in the following:
The Servant Queen and the King she Serves
Our sister Bible Society in England and Wales has produced a book that explores and celebrates the place of Her Majesty’s Christian faith in the context of her formal role, public ceremony, her personal and family life, in times of celebration and in the face of adversity. The Queen herself has provided the foreword for this book.
I have been – and remain – very grateful to you for your prayers and to God for his steadfast love. I have indeed seen his faithfulness. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
The book has been published together with HOPE and LICC.
To purchase copies of the book, visit the Christian Publishing & Outreach website.
The Patron’s Lunch
The Patron’s Lunch is a significant National and Commonwealth event to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s patronage of over 600 charities and organisations throughout her lifetime, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
The Queen is our Patron and we are inviting our supporters to join us in marking this occasion with their own local event that also helps raise the profile of the Scottish Bible Society. This could be your own version of The Patron’s Lunch or a coffee morning, for example, that could take place simultaneously with the event in London which will be broadcast on television.
For ideas on how to hold your own local event, visit The Patron’s Lunch website.
The Queen’s Birthday Book and Commemorative Medal
To celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, The Online Book Company has opened a dedicated online birthday book for people across the world to send their heartfelt good wishes to Her Majesty via the website.
When leaving a message for The Queen, there is an opportunity to purchase a special 90th Birthday Commemorative Medal, issued by The London Mint Office. A proportion of the cost of the medals will be donated to The Queen’s charities, one of which will be the Scottish Bible Society.
