BCB 2011 Tour Bible Study Notes


We would invite you not only follow our progress on this tour by looking at photographs and reading “diary entries”, but we would also encourage you to share in our Bible Study material.  Simply click on the day (i.e. “Day One”) to read the study for that day.


Lt. Col. Anthony Cotterill writes.....


It is an immense privilege for us to travel To Canada with Christ for the purpose of spreading his Gospel and to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ at the various locations we will visit. We all are expecting great things as we seek to give ourselves and our talents and gifts unreservedly for God.

There is another journey taking place for us – we know we are heading towards Easter Sunday and the celebration that Jesus is alive, a truth that is in fact marked every Sunday and hopefully every day of our lives. As we travel the Holy Week Journey we have been given an opportunity to live the story as perhaps never before. Each day we have time for either personal or corporate study of God’s word with the prayer that Easter 2011 will be a glorious one of enrichment for ourselves and thus to the people we will be with during these days in Canada and then, perhaps most crucially, the people that we return to in the UK – our families, our Corps, our places of employment or study.


Introduction - Each day there is a set of notes to aid some study – there are some pictures and some questions for you to grapple with.
