What is Holiday Bible Club?
Holiday Bible Club (or HBC as it is known) is a week long full of activities for kids in P1-P7 (those going into P1 in September 2020 are more than welcome too). We have games, competitions, worship, bible stories, prizes, crafts and a whole lot more (you’ll just have to come along to find out).
We take seriously the encouragement of the Bible to introduce Jesus to kids at a young age (Ecclesiastes ch. 12 v. 1) so they can make informed decisions in their own lives, and this week of fun does just that, we would love to see your children at this year’s HBC.
HBC normally takes place in the last week of July. As we reach spring time please keep an eye out (and an ear too) for more information on our theme, timings of the week and registration details. We also have a FAQ section below to answer any of your questions you may have. For more information about HBC (or anything youth related in St John’s) contact Matthew: firstname.lastname@example.org
Holiday Bible Club FAQs
We are sure that you will have questions about the Holiday Bible Club. Read on to find some answers to your questions:

We have a packed daily timetable! The morning starts at 10am with some songs and dancing, we then have a short drama followed by splitting into groups. Each Group will rotate around the various rooms, which involves, snacks, games, Bible stories and craft. Towards the end of the session each group comes together once again for a recap of the day finishing with some more songs and dancing.
- How do I collect my child?
Children enter the club at 10am through the door at the back of the Parish Centre (where the carpark is). On collecting your child, we ask you enter through this door, children will not be released until a parent/guardian is present. Please be very careful when driving into the car park because there will be a lot of children around!
- Someone else will be collecting my child. What do I need to do?
Please ensure that you have noted on your consent/registration form that someone else is coming to collect other than the parent (giving name and relation to child/parent).
