Children enjoyed a fun-packed week at the ‘Champions Holiday Bible Club’ in Hillsborough Elim Pentecostal Church on Monday 22nd to Friday 26th August from 10.30am to 12.00 noon, with certificates and medals for budding young ‘champions.’ The theme for the week was based on Hebrews 12 v 1-2: “Let us run with determination the race that lies before us. Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end.”
