Each year tens of thousands of individuals and families from across the United Kingdom gather for Big Church Day Out (BCDO), two life-changing days of music, worship, and loving Jesus. Over 40,000 participants joined in this year’s amazing event to hear such artists and bands as Matt Redman, Kari Jobe, Guvna B, Lucy Grimble, LZ7, Britt Nicole, and many others. This month TBN UK will be airing select highlights from 2018’s BCDO, hosted by award-winning Christian rapper Faith Child, a regular artist at BCDO. Check out Faith Child’s take on this major UK Christian music festival (below), and join him each week for BCDO Highlights, airing Fridays at 7:30 p.m., and repeated Saturdays at 2 p.m. — exclusively on TBN UK.
As a musician and rapper I take part in many Christian music festivals and gatherings throughout the year. And without a doubt, Big Church Day Out is at the top of the list for great music, atmosphere, and life-changing impact for all who participate —both artists and audience. If there’s anything close to heaven on earth, it has to be Big Church Day Out. There is an awesome spirit of unity and fellowship at work from start to finish, as diverse cultures, backgrounds, musical genres, and expressions of faith all come together in a two-day celebration of who Jesus is and what He has accomplished for each of us!
As an artist and performer, I am always incredibly refreshed as I witness audiences pressing in to worship the Lord and encourage each artist. My band and I enjoy playing Big Church Day Out every year, making new friends, and giving our BCDO family a sneak peek at new material we’re working on before we release it. It’s truly a joy for us to take part in this life-transforming event.
This year’s event was a particularly exciting experience for me as I had the privilege of working with TBN UK to film the Big Church Day Out highlights series airing this month. You won’t want to miss a single weekly installment as we go behind the scenes to interview artists, hear about their passion for Jesus, and experience the beauty of thousands of believers enjoying God’s presence. Plus, you’ll witness all the fun that is part of the BCDO experience.
On a personal note, one experience I will never forget was meeting up with one of the security guards working at BCDO this year. This young man shared his incredible testimony of coming to faith in Christ a couple of years ago when he “just happened” to take a shift at Big Church Day Out, heard the Gospel message, and gave his heart and life to Christ. At the end of the day, that’s what Big Church Day Out is all about — people coming to Jesus!
At the end of the day, that’s what Big Church Day Out is all about — people coming to Jesus!

How has TBN UK helped YOU?
“I said the prayer of salvation while watching your channel TBN UK and became completely overwhelmed. I couldn’t stop crying. I’ve been so depressed and in such a dark place for months. Now I feel like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders. I came across your channel completely by accident but I’m glad I did! I feel like I’ve been given this extra strength from somewhere. Thank you guys.”
“A friend told me about TBN UK nearly 2 years ago. I really think it has saved my life, since the sudden unexpected death of my 17 year old son in May 2016. I watch the channel all the time. The other TV channels seem so meaningless and irrelevant. Thank you so much for the work you do. I wish I had known about TBN years ago as it would have saved me a lot of heartache in my life.”
