Easter is one of the most important festivals in Christianity and marks the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. The celebration has a long history spanning more than 2,000 years and is an important time for Christians all over the world. Read on to learn more about the meaning of Easter and Easter traditions in BCC.

In recent years, BCC has invested in producing content for children, especially animated films about Bible stories. Over 50 films are already on the Bible Kids YouTube channel as well as on our app BCC Media, and more are being produced each year. Our wish is for the Bible to be accessible and brought to life for children.

Perhaps one of the most exciting stories is precisely what happened at Easter over 2,000 years ago. Click on the animated film below to see this explained in a simple and illustrative way.

Long Tradition in Celebrating the Easter Holiday

For over 100 years, BCC has organized Easter conferences. Since the church began using Brunstad as a meeting place back in 1956, the Easter festival has been celebrated there. This year is no exception.

Brunstad is the central gathering place for more than 220 congregations associated with Brunstad Christian Church worldwide, including 12 North American churches. Several generations have experienced fellowship and holidays together during the conferences at Brunstad and bonds of friendship have been forged across cultures, nations and age groups.

Easter Conference is a festive time when we gather around the life-changing message Jesus brought. In addition to Easter services, Easter Conference features activities, meals, and fellowship in and around the massive conference village at the Oslofjord Convention Center.

Voluntary Efforts Make Space for Young People

Things truly kick off on Saturday, the week before Easter weekend, though, and many voluntary hours are behind the preparations as 4,700 expectant young people arrive for Easter Camp, an international faith-based camp for 13-26 year olds. Young adults use the Easter holidays to help make the camp an unforgettable experience for younger teenagers.

The holiday peaks when over 12,000 members gather for the conference in the latter half of Easter week. The youngest participant is only a few weeks old, and the oldest is well over 100.

We wish our members a camp and conference filled with content, and all our readers a happy Easter!
