The Bible Course

An eight-session course helping you explore the BIG story.

Big, complex, old … just some of the words people use to describe the Bible. Sound familiar? That’s where The Bible Course comes in. The course will increase your confidence, equip you to read the Bible better and help you to see its relevance to daily life. The course provides a birds-eye view of the world’s bestselling book.  

Over eight interactive sessions, it combines video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection and daily readings. It’s ideal for one-to-ones, small study groups or larger gatherings. The course can be run online or face to face and you can choose to buy the films as a DVD, digital download or via our new streaming platform.

The Bible Course for groups is ideal for one-to-one coaching, small groups and larger gatherings and can be used anywhere from homes or workplaces to prisons. It can also be used by older youth groups, student groups and in churches. 

The Bible Course for individuals is a new resource taking the core content from the group resource and reworking it into an interactive journey through the course, designed for an individual to consume quickly in their day-to-day life.

The course is accessible for people new to Christianity, ideal as a follow-on from courses like Alpha or for mature Christians wanting to increase their understanding of the Bible.

Dr Andrew Ollerton (author, lecturer and pastor) originally developed The Bible Course to help people in Cornwall who were new to the Christian faith and the Bible. Since then thousands of people have attended and enjoyed The Bible Course from across the UK and abroad. It’s  also been used by a wide variety of denominations and networks.

Reviews

We followed several groups as they progressed through the eight week course. Here’s what they had to say. 

Beth Dent – The Stowe Church, Swindon 

Beth is very comfortable reading some books of the Bible but wanted the confidence to challenge herself a bit more. The course has helped her to understand the bigger picture and the relevance of the Bible.

Simon Ronald – Romford Baptist Church

Before the course, Simon struggled to read the Bible – from finding the time to understanding the ‘black holes’ of the Old Testament. After just eight weeks he found a new ‘respect’ for the Bible.
