Tain area must have the funniest, kindest, politest and most well-behaved children around, according to Jodie Mackay, organiser of Tain Parish Church Holiday Bible Club.

There was a chance to try various activities.

Each session was led by Jodie and Professor Blobby (Rev Andrew Fothergill, the minister of Tain Parish Church).

Exploding pots, discovering our fingerprints, learning about light, being enclosed in a bubble, creating clay animals and making robots were just some of the activities.

Mrs Mackay said: “Through these we learned of God’s great wisdom, that He created everything, that Jesus is the Light of the world and that unlike robots which are programmed we can make choices and God’s way is the best way to follow.”

The enthusiastic singing, with actions, led by Sharon Macleod raised the roof.

There was a lot of fun during the week, an ice cube challenge, the Jaffa Cake challenge and a “wonderful” water fight as the week came to an end.

The family service on Sunday was well attended as week’s activities was shared using a PowerPoint presentation with children singing the Holiday Bible Club Songs.
