Street Baptist Church is privileged to have had a long history of vibrant youth work, which over many years has included an annual Holiday Bible Club. Many people in Street recall with pleasure the time they spent as children in this holiday club, and now look forward to sending their own children along each year.
The Holiday Bible Club normally runs for one week, usually the first week of the summer holidays.
Each year we have up to 100 children from Street and the surrounding area come to the club. We run a varied programme of activities, games, competitions, stories and songs, all around a theme for the year.
We use the opportunity to introduce children to Bible stories and teach them more about God’s love for them. At the end of each day the children will return home with a work sheet that tells the parents all about the day their children have had, the Bible stories they heard, and the activities they undertook.
From 2011, in the evenings, we have also run a club for teenagers, using the additional facilities we provide for the young people in the day. We have been so pleased with the response to this initiative which enables us to continue contact with children from HBC right into their teenage years.
