Large attendance at Bible club at 1st Dromara

Leaders and some of the large crowd of children that attended the Holiday Bible Club
at 1st Dromara Presbyterian Church last week.

A large crowd of over 235 children attended a hugely successful Holiday Bible Club at 1st Dromara Presbyterian Church last week on Monday 26th to Friday 30th June. Led by Ian McCullagh and a team of 34 leaders, the fun packed programme included:  Bible Stories, Lively singing, Videos, Games, Quizzes, Competitions, Memory verses, Crafts, and lots more.

The elevated site of the church grounds with panoramic views of the adjoining countryside and beautiful sunny weather created the idyllic setting for a barbeque on Friday evening as over 550 children and parents enjoyed the final night of the Holiday Bible Club and the start of school holidays.  Gransha Pipe Band led by Pipe Major Robert Greer, further adding to the great holiday atmosphere.

First Dromara has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years. Encouraged by their minister, the Rev Shaw Thompson, the Bible Club leaders headed up by Ian McCullagh, have put in an enormous effort during the year. New families to the area found a warm welcome and quickly became part of things.
