On Monday 15th August 2005, a seemingly endless queue of 100 children of primary school age enrolled for ‘Streetwise’ the Holiday Bible Club at Immanuel Baptish Church, Ballymacash.  The stage area of the church depicted a typical ‘street’ where Jesus ministered. 

Each day at the Holiday Bible Club, one of the leaders appeared in the makeshift biblical street and narrated a story from Luke’s Gospel to the large crowd of children. 

Stories included: “The healing of the lame man,” “The cheat’s house - Zacchaeus,” and “The Passover”.

In addition to the ‘Streetwise’ Bible stories, the children enjoyed a super fun-packed programme that included singing, craft, quizzes, games and a puppet show.Pictured at the Holiday Bible Club - ‘Streetwise’ in Emmanuel Baptist Church, Ballymacash are Pastor Robert Murdock and his wife Elaine with their children Caleb and Grace, and (back row) Katherine, Adam and Jane.
