Mega Makers!

Holiday Bible Club 2017 - Mega Makers!

Holiday Bible Club ran from 7th until 11th August from 10:00 to 12:30, as usual, and was free for over 60 children, aged 5 to 10. The children enjoyed games, art, crafts, cookery, stories, jokes, puppets and music based on material from Scripture Union covering various stories from the Bible, all set in an engineering context. This included the Mega Machine that made things bigger!

Pictures and jokes were supplied by the children and read out each day by Brainwave (Boffin's assistant). Joke of the week was: "What's the difference between a soldier and a policeman? You can't dip your policeman in your boiled egg!"

Holiday Bible Club will return in 2018.
