The Bible Course for groups

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

Whether you’re well versed in Scripture or new to the Bible, The Bible Course offers a superb overview of the world’s best-selling book. The course will increase your confidence, equip you to read the Bible better and help you to see its relevance to daily life. Over eight interactive sessions, it combines video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection and daily readings. 

Meeting people in groups, where everyone shares their thoughts and experiences, lies at the heart of The Bible Course as everyone learns from each other.

'If you are looking for a course to help your Church or small group engage and understand the story of the Bible, can I encourage you to look at The Bible Course. The Bible is the only book that we can read in the company of the author which is an incredible thought. The Bible Course will enrich you and you will discover truth, wisdom and guidance.'

In response to recent restrictions, we set about developing an exciting new way for small groups to experience The Bible Course, online.

This improved experience works alongside your favourite online conferencing tools like Zoom and Skype, overcoming poor quality video sharing, so that the whole group experience works in an integrated way. Group hosts can now share a link within the call, allowing the whole group to directly access the session content and videos for themselves.

Once the link is shared, group members can play the video at the appropriate point as the group host guides them through the content including discussion questions, personal reflections and daily readings. There’s also a handy online Bible to refer to relevant passages, just one click away!
