Timings: 9am – 2pm every day at St Ebbe’s Church, with a special family fun event on Friday 30th August from 2-4pm at St Ebbe’s Primary School.

NB: Please bring a packed lunch each day.

If you have any questions, please email Wesley Xu.

Future Holiday Bible Clubs

Every half-term, St Ebbe’s puts on a one-day event for children in school years R – 6. The day is comprised of top-notch games, taste-bud-tickling snacks, and tip-top storytelling from the Bible. All primary school-aged children are welcome to be a part of the great hullabaloo and general hubbub that the event will inevitably provide. More details for each event can be found below.
