The Holiday Bible Club takes place during the first week of August each year, and continues to attract close to 200 children in the morning sessions and about 100 young people for the evening times. Most of all the children come from the local community. Because we are limited as to how many can attend, there is often a waiting list for children who want to be part of the action. The dates for this year are from Monday, August 4th through Friday, August 8th.
Our activities include Bible lessons, music, crafts, games, funsheets etc. We continually thank God for all the leaders and helpers He sends us each year, without whom it would be impossible to run a club this size. Our help comes from people from various churches such as Carryduff, Hamilton Road, and Arklow Presbyterian Churches, Bridge Christian Fellowship, here in Arklow, and Fellowship Bible Church, in Springdale, Arkansas, USA.
All adult leaders meet the requirements of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s Child Protection Policy.
