Easter Holiday Club 2018 (9:30am to 12:30pm, Tuesday 10th to Friday 13th April 2018) – sign up here now! Our Easter Holiday Bible Club is for all primary school children and will run in the mornings.
This year we will be using the Mega Makers! material from Scripture Union, which is based on Matthew’s Gospel. It explores the theme of inventions, and that the more we discover about God, the vaster his love for us may seem. Please contact Kerry if you are able to help in any way or have any questions about the club.
