This article argues that the development of Missions in South Africa could  be directly linked to the founding of Bible Society work in South Africa. The article focuses on the development of missions and how the availability of  Scriptures in the vernacular enhanced this work. The unique relationship between Mission development, the Church and the Bible Society will be discussed as to highlight and fully  understand this unique influence and partnership. This partnership is an ongoing relationship and with the new challenges arising this will have to be developed even further.
