God's BIG story

Many people are familiar with at least one or two stories from the Bible but far fewer people know or understand the BIG story the Bible tells. This story is really important as it helps us make sense of what the other stories and other writings in the Bible are all about and equally

At BCF we are doing a series of Sunday talks to help tell that BIG story, through these pages we will provide links to those talks and the supporting materials. Our aim is to encourage folks to dig deeper and follow God's BIg Story as it weaves its way through the whole Bible.
