The Amazing Journey

In the spring of 2000, BSNI was approached by Baptist Youth to support a new Bible Story-telling initiative in schools called 'The Amazing Journey'. The aim was to work in partnership with local churches to present the Scriptures to school children in a highly visual way, using a chronological display (which fills an assembly hall), captivating narration, and characters who would walk on at various points, in costume, to tell their own story.

Each child receives a pack to take home which includes a Scripture portion and the offer of a free 'Big Word for Kids' - CEV New Testament - a gift from the Bible Society.

Black Mountain Primary had the pleasure of participating in this initiative today. The children had lots of fun and learned about the Bible.
