The Children’s Scripture Learning Programme (formerly the Sabbath School Scripture Learning Prize Fund) commenced in 1972 to encourage English-speaking children to memorise the Holy Scriptures from the Authorised (King James) Version of the Bible.

Under the rules of the programme we provide lists of verses to be memorised by children in two age groups: ten years and under, and eleven to fifteen. The younger children learn the verses in the Junior section; the older children learn the longer portions in the Senior section. To the younger children who memorise their verses, we award suitably inscribed leather text Bibles with gilt page edges. For the older children, suitably inscribed leather reference Bibles with gilt page edges are awarded. Children who have received the junior award may, upon reaching eleven years, receive the reference Bible if they learn the verses for the senior age group.

We would encourage all parents, office bearers, Sabbath school teachers and school teachers to consider the Children’s Scripture Learning Programme for the children under their care.
