……..the Bible Learning Centre is too!
Young volunteers from across the country will be joining the BLC team during the week commencing August 5th to take the BLC out into Solihull Town Centre and Malvern Park.
Activities for youngsters will include a puppet show featuring Bible stories about Noah, Jonah and the Good Samaritan, face painting and other activities, with balloons and other giveaways for children. For adults there will be free copies of the Gospel of Luke, pens and bookmarks and a special survey designed to test public awareness of the Bible Learning Centre’s role.
“Weather permitting we will be out in the Town Centre each morning and Malvern Park in the afternoon from Wednesday to Friday inclusive,” says John Botten, who is co-ordinating the event. “The Town Centre sessions will normally be from about 10.30 a. m. to 12 noon and the Malvern Park sessions from 2.15 to about 4 p.m. There will be no charge for any of the activities, but we will be accepting donations to the Meal a Day charity”
The purpose of the BLC+ event is to raise awareness of the existence of the Bible Learning Centre. “Over 9000 people have visited the Centre, but there are a lot of people who still do not know we are there in Poplar Way, so we want to help them to find us.”
The purpose of the Bible Learning Centre is to promote Bible reading and understanding, with a special emphasis on reaching those who have never read the Bible before. “We want people who come into Solihull to have the opportunity to come into the Centre at any time when they are in town and find out more about the Bible. This is an amazing, inspiring book which has not only had a huge influence on our society, but which changes lives for the better and has powerful prophecies about the state of the world,” says John Botten, one of the team of volunteers who manage the Centre. “We are delighted with the positive response we have had from so many people since we opened.”
