The Bible is not just a book, it’s The Greatest Story Ever Told! We take a birds eye view of the whole Bible in 9 lessons, from Genesis to Revelation seeing God’s salvation story unfold. 

In this series children will discover the big picture themes of the Bible. Starting with Origins - where the story all began. In the opening scene we learn that we all need to be rescued and God has a plan! The story follows God’s people in Egypt and their journey to the promised land as we discover that God takes care of His people. Through a series of Judges and Kings we learn, from the good and bad, that God wants us to trust and obey Him. 

The Hero of the story rises as we see God’s Chosen One, Jesus, spoken of by the prophets arrive announcing that The Kingdom of God is Here. An unexpected twist to the Saviour God’s people were looking for. Next, we discover that we have a Tale To Tell - a mission from Jesus to share the good news. 

The Never Ending Story of God and His people continues as we follow the Early Church and the bold men and women who travelled to spread the Gospel. We learn that the Church is God’s plan for us and that the Great God adventure is to be shared. The story of God and His people is still being written today, we are all part of God’s story and Jesus will return… Coming Soon!
