The Bible as God's Word is at the centre of all that we do at PMC.
For Christians The Bible is one of the main places we turn to for guidance and inspiration in our daily lives.
For 2011, Biblefresh became a movement of hundreds of churches, agencies, colleges, festivals and denominations to encourage people, particularly within the church, to stop viewing the Bible as a toxic text, and find new ways to engage with passion with the Bible.
Biblefresh is a movement of churches, agencies, organisations, colleges and festivals which has a vision to reignite and re-enthuse the church in its passion for the Bible. The aim of the Biblefresh initiative is to encourage a greater confidence and passion for Scripture across the Church.
The impetus for The Big Bible Project came from Biblefresh (as well as The Big Read in the NorthEast), especially drawing upon this aim:
Whilst we want to encourage personal Bible reading, we recognise that the Bible was written to be read in community. When we study the Bible together rather than alone, we are less likely to skew the message, as each person brings a different perspective.
When Biblefresh came to an end, The Big Bible Project thought that there was so much good material that they’ve agreed to archive the resources, and look forward to finding ways of building upon the materials that can now be widely shared.
The #BigBible Project seeks to draw Christians from all churches & none into deeper engagement with the Bible through local reading groups & online conversations. Follow this link to get involved.
