Join the journey…
We’re guessing you’re here because like us, you too get excited about the vision of the Big Church Day Out, and perhaps your life, or the lives of your family and friends have been impacted through it.
The Big Church Day Out's vision is multi-layered, a bit like the skins of an onion, but as you peel back the layers at our core you’ll find a heart that is passionate about playing our part in bringing God’s kingdom to earth in this generation.
Some of the layers are easier to see, things like a passion for evangelism and seeing many people make commitments to follow Jesus, and others are less obvious, like our prayer that everyone will leave BCDO with a fresh sense of hope, with more courage, and with the faith and expectation that God can use them to play their part in building His church.
We want to make our mark on culture too, and get upset when the media constantly reports that the ‘church’ is in decline, when all around our country we see an army rising up to impact our nation, and the Big Church Day Out wants to celebrate this and cheer on those that live each day wanting to make a difference.
We also believe in gathering and unity and love it when the Bible talks about the ‘Great Assembly’
“I will give you thanks in the great assembly, I will give you praise among huge crowds of people.” Psalm 35:18
Our vision is to do all we can to make the event as accessible to as many as possible, not only so the wider church can come together, but so that people feel comfortable inviting their friends and family from outside of church, and that’s why we discount our tickets so much.
And here’s the exciting bit, you too can partner with us to help see the great assembly grow, to see more lives impacted, and to see the Big Church Day Out continue to be the beacon for the church we believe God wants it to be.
The Big Church Day Out is a charity, and our annual budget is in excess of £2.5 million. We raise around 90% of this through our main activities, but each year have to fund raise the remaining 10%, around £250,000.
Right now we are still fundraising to recover around £500,000 of unrecoverable costs due to having to cancel the 2020 event because of coronavirus, whilst we continue to plan for our next gathering.
We would be so grateful if you would join us on this journey.
