Bible Talks

Principal's Hour is held each Wednesday at SMBC during term time. The recording includes prayers, readings, interviews and discussions, as well as the main Bible talk. They are available as audio files for listening online or via download. Sometimes they are also available as video files for watching online (on Vimeo). You can also subscribe to the podcast here.
They're great to use for your own encouragement, or in your Bible study group or church.

2021 Update - We've been busy working on the start of hybrid classes this year, and haven't been able to prepare Principal's Hour recordings for public release as usual. We have the recordings stored up, and we look forward to releasing them all later on this year. We appreciate that many people have been missing these recordings this semester, and apologise for the delay.
