Reel Issues

Reel Issues is a free resource which equips you to discuss links between big-screen themes, everyday life and the Bible.

Separated into three streams – Clip, Scene and Epic – they are ideal for small groups, youth groups or to enhance a sermon, and will help you to bring the Bible to life in your home, church or group

Reel Issues is an excellent way to help people relate the Bible they read to the films they see.

Three formats to suit you

Reel Issues Clip – for quick and friendly chats

Bite-sized summaries of current films to help start a discussion with friends or to complement a message in a sermon.

Reel Issues Scene – for youth groups

Topic-based activities and creative discussion starters to help young people see life and film through the lens of the Bible.

Reel Issues Epic – for small groups

In-depth notes for your small group or film club, helping you dig deeper and connect the Bible with life’s big issues.
