It’s all hands on deck preparing for Tabernacle’s 2019 Summer Holiday Bible Club which will take place between 23-26 July. The annual event, supported by loyal church groups from the United States, has grown substantially over the years and now attracts as many as 140 children aged five and over. They take part in activities broadly categorized under the headings Religious and Cultural Study, and Arts and Crafts. The emphasis is upon having fun in a safe, happy environment with the opportunity to make new friends.
This year, the event has been boosted by an Asda grant of £300 towards the running costs. Tabernacle deacon and grants officer Geoff Champion received the cheque from Asda, Blackwood community champion Lucie Brown. Earlier this year Asda made a grant of £1,002 towards the costs of purchasing new kitchen equipment, chairs and other items for the church’s Community Luncheon Club for Over 50’s.
” It is really encouraging when our active programme of work for people in the community is recognized and supported by such a household name as Asda”, said Geoff. “It shows how God can open doors when you are about His business!”
