For several months now and as part of a National Gideon project, the Gideons International in conjunction with the Christian Police Association, have been delighted to offer a beautiful New Testament and Psalms to all Police and Police staff within the PSNI. Having received the appropriate permission, the slim line New Testament and Psalms is embossed with the PSNI crest.
The testament is offered to all staff as a free gift for personal retention and without obligation or feeling of compulsion to accept it. The Gideon Testament includes the excellent helps and guides that are useful for the many different experiences of life. CPA members in many stations across the Service have been assisting the Gideons to ensure that as many individuals as possible are offered a copy of the Testament free of charge.
In total, approximately 5500 Testaments have been accepted with over 1200 being requested by a dedicated Email request facility.
Some of the comments we have had
I wish to pass on my thanks for the Gideon’s bibles. I wrote a personal message in the front of each and distributed among my section colleagues. It opened up some discussion and everyone seemed pleased to have received the bibles. Please share with Gideons and CPA committee my thanks, as a great tool to share my faith in a simple way.
I would like to avail of your very kind offer and gift of a PSNI crested Testament. I very much look forward to receiving it at your convenience of course
I would be delighted to receive my personal copy
