Holiday Bible Club

HBC Poster 2024

Every year we hold a Holiday Bible Club, during the summer holidays. It runs Monday to Friday mornings during the week that ends on the second Sunday of August (on which day we have a special HBC service).

It is open for free to all children aged 5 to 10, and runs from 10:00 to 12:30
No pre-registering, just come earlier the first day to register.

We had hoped Holiday Bible Club could be held in August 2020 and 2021, but sadly not! It was back for 2022 and 2023.

Holiday Bible Club will next be on in 2024, 5th-9th August, from 10:00-12:30 daily!

The first HBC was believed to have been in 1980 and continued with outside help such as from Youth for Christ. The first of the current format, run purely by the church, was 1984 when Revd Bernard Arnold introduced the story of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" with a real wardrobe, but not a real lion.

Other early editions were also home-written and based on children's literature, such as "The Land of Far Beyond" (the retelling by Enid Blyton of John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress"). 1985 was "The Tanglewoods' Secret".
