Holiday Bible Week is a week-long event for children aged between 5 & 12, every year during the school summer holidays. It is organised by the churches of Bishop’s Stortford.
Each year, around 500 children take part in a wide variety of activities – all centred around Jesus Christ and the Bible.
During the week, children enjoy singing, games, puzzles, Bible stories and puppet shows. The days begin at 10:00am and end at 3:30pm, and there is a parents’ open evening on the Thursday evening from 6:00pm, where parents and relatives are invited to see what the children have been up to.
