The Society's website states that it offers "a range of articles on very diverse subjects - but all seeking to show that the Bible provides a solid foundation not only for our understanding of origins but also for every aspect of life." The Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness Center, a student organisation promoting intelligent design, included the BCS website among 19 given their highest rating for usefulness, out of 67 that promote intelligent design or creationism.
The BCS publishes a journal, Origins (formerly Biblical Creation) two or three times a year.
The British Centre for Science Education, which opposes the teaching of creationism in UK schools, acknowledges that the Biblical Creation Society "appears to be the second largest of the UK's dedicated creationist organisations" and "has some very highly educated members and associates".
Another prominent member, David C. Watts (a senior lecturer in biomaterials science at the University of Manchester), went even further in diverging from the American view, described giving primacy to the question of the age of the Earth a "great mistake" and admitted the possibility that life existed before the Edenic creation. His views slowly moved to progressive creationism.
The Society or its officers have been invited to represent the creationist case when the creation-evolution controversy is debated in the UK. In the 1986 the Society's President, Edgar Andrews, represented the BCS in the Huxley Memorial Debate at the Oxford Union, seconded by A. E. Wilder-Smith. Their proposition was "That the Doctrine of Creation is more valid than the Theory of Evolution". They lost the debate to Richard Dawkins and John Maynard Smith who opposed this proposition.
The Society has supported conferences organised by evangelical churches. However, not all evangelicals or Christians agree with their position. Some members of the Research Scientists' Christian Fellowship (who do not individually or collectively identify themselves as "creationist" but which, as one of the as one of the professional groups of the UCCF, held to the same Doctrinal Basis as the BCS) met with members of the BCS to identify their points of disagreement. This meeting resulted in the publication of eight questions to the BCS on the application of Biblical authority to the question of evolution.
In 2006 the prominent creationist group Answers in Genesis posted a page disputing the 'Recolonisation Theory' and accusing its supporters of "compromis[ing] on the truth of Scripture". The Committee of the BCS responded stating that the accusation was against "several members of BCS (who are also contributors to Origins)", that BCS "do[es] not take a collective position on the Recolonisation Model", but that labelling them as "compromisers" was unjustified, and that placing it along "alongside 'articles on compromises of Scripture such as the Gap Theory, the Framework Hypothesis, Theistic Evolution and Progressive Creation' is totally unwarranted.
