Home360

Adre 360

In 2020, we'll be bringing the Bible to Britain's towns and cities in what we believe is the most exciting mission project in a generation.

Working alongside local churches, we're reaching out to people who might never have engaged with the Bible through a powerful, immersive film called Home360.

Made in stunning 360° wraparound film and using the latest CGI/Virtual Reality technology, it shows the Bible in a way that people will have never experienced before. Using Scripture and narration, the experience shows us drama in a modern-day home, the parable of the Prodigal Son, and a documentary style overview of the Bible’s big story. 

The experience touches on ideas of love, loss, forgiveness and belonging – themes common to every audience.

Get Involved

The film – 15 minutes long – will be shown in a nine-metre dome seating around 30 people at a time, or around 100 per hour. We're aiming to partner with local churches who'll work with us to identify suitable locations for the dome and provide volunteers for host teams. The host teams will meet and greet visitors at the domes and offer hospitality.

Throughout 2020 we anticipate thousands of people will share this unique experience. It will offer churches the opportunity to build relationships with their local communities and connect the Big Story of the Bible to everyday life.

FAQ

We expect the dome to be in each location for around three days.

No. The dome and the technology will be installed and operated by a professional crew. We will provide insurance and 24-hour security overnight and work with local councils to ensure permissions and legalities are all covered.

No, there won’t be any costs. Bible Society will provide all the equipment required. 

The dome needs to be sited in a public space. This could be a shopping centre, a town square, a beach, a park – wherever lots of people gather. We would prefer not to be outside a church, but may consider the grounds of a cathedral if this is deemed the best choice.  

In partnering with Bible Society, the churches will need to provide a team to work alongside Bible Society staff to ensure a warm welcome to visitors and offer hospitality. After the dome has visited your area, we'll offer follow-up materials for churches interested in unpacking the issues raised in Home360. These resources will be provided freely for your church.
