For many years, WHEFC have run a week long Holiday Bible Club for children who have been at Primary School for the last year.
This is usually a week in August and sessions are from 9.30-12.30. In 2018, the theme for the club was Bible Superheros, where through stories and dramas, the children learned all about some key people from the Bible and what we can learn from them about how to live our lives to have a positive impact on the people around us. The children participated in small group discussions, action songs, crafts, workshops, team challenges, games, sports, and quizzes, earning points which they could then “spend” on souvenirs to take home.
On the Friday we held an awards ceremony and free family BBQ for all of the children and their families to attend and get to know each other and us. On the Sunday following the club, we had a special family service where the children and their families are invited to come along and share with the wider church what they have been doing and learning about during the week.
For years, this club has been well regarded by the community and in 2018, we had over 60 children attending. We worked with Inspire Children’s Ministries this year to make sure we could support any children with Special Needs.
The provisional date for HBC 2019 are 5-9th August-watch this space for more details coming soon.
