Request For Old Family Bibles

Reverend Charlie Gibbs

If you have an old family bible, Reverend Charlie Gibbs wants to borrow it for a display being organised to coincide with the 400th edition of the King James version of the book.

During the first week of August, islanders’ bibles will be on show in the Wesley Room in The Manse together with information on the history of each copy.

Charlie says he really wants to see how old some of the bibles used in Scilly are and he says people might learn something about their own copies.
