The 2018 Event

Lively and contemporary in style, Bible by the Beach is a high quality, Bible-centred conference for all God's people. It attracts church groups, couples, families and individuals at all stages on their Christian journey.

Gathering together in Eastbourne over the first May bank holiday weekend each year, 100s of Christians of all ages are encouraged, strengthened and equipped through clear, faithful and applied teaching of the Bible.

Our theme for 2018 is FAITHFUL in a changing world. Speakers include Jeremy McQuoid, Lee McMunn, Glynn Harrison, Jonty Allcock, Simon Vibert and Graham Beynon.

We will dig deep into God's word in the main Bible readings, work through the practical applications in a choice of seminar streams, and rejoice in the gospel together in our evening celebrations.

As usual, high quality music for our sung worship, a full children and youth programme, an extensive bookstall and exhibition area, and After Hours evening events are all part of the Bible by the Beach programme for 2018.

Bookings for the event next year (4 - 7 May) will open on September 17.

I’d like to support BBTB


Alongside two part-time event organisers it is the band of 150 volunteers that make BBTB happen. Without the warm smile of the stewards, the energy & enthusiasm of the youth team or the calm efficiency at the welcome desk this event could not take place. Our volunteers comment on how rewarding and enjoyable it is being part of the team and if you think you have something to offer we would love to hear from you. In return we will provide all meals whilst on duty, free entry to the conference when not on duty, some help with travel expenses and free access to recorded talks immediately after the event. Call us to find out more, or click on the button to download an application form.
