The Big Family Build is an annual Christian brick building competition, encouraging families to work on a shared project while diving into God’s word!

How do I enter?

Create a construction made of LEGO® bricks based on this year’s theme:

Bible Metaphors and Similes

Bible metaphors and similes are found throughout the Old and New Testament and are used to describe God, Jesus, ourselves and the world. For example: “I am the light of the world” or “Keep me as the apple of your eye.” Find one that inspires you to build! See our list to help you get started.

To enter:

  • Create with at least two members of the same family (You can also team up with someone you consider to be family). Team members can be of any age (including only adults) but we have a special prize category for builds by kids 16 years and under.
  • Constructions can be made with LEGO® blocks or duplo.
  • Fill out the application form and send us some photos/video of your creation from various angles. Please include at least one photo of yourselves with your build.
  • Be sure to encourage your friends and family to vote for your build in the People’s Choice Award.

Please note: The competition is only open to Australian residents.
