A Welsh Bible app has been launched at the Eisteddfod in Powys in Wales.

Arfon Jones who has produced ap beibl says it's intended to be an easy to use Bible for people who have no internet access.

Ap beibl is a pun in Welsh meaning ‘Son of the Bible’ as well as Bible app. Arfon has worked with Bible Society to produce the new app which he says he hopes will appeal to young people and encourage them to read the Bible.

He says, "Lots of young people prefer to read their Bibles on a mobile phone. It makes it easier for them. Ultimately I’m hoping that it will get people to be challenged by Jesus. But I’m also hoping that this will challenge people’s perceptions about what the Bible actually teaches."

Christine Daniel, Head of Bible Society Wales said, "The people of Wales have found the Bible to be life-changing and formative for many generations. We hope this new app will bring the Bible to younger generations across Wales."
