Holiday Club 2012 – On Your Marks…

The Olympics come to DBC

The Olympics came to DBC as well as to London in 2012, and what a lot happened! Athletes told us about their careers and the place that God had in their lives – we created Olympic logos and glasses, participants' passes, fluffy mascots, embroidered sports bags and a crowd scene – every day we exercised (to the tune of Chariots of Fire …) under the guidance of a sporting gentleman with a dodgy hairdo and an even dodgier accent – every morning we were checked for fitness by Nurse Barbara – we had our very own Olympic flame and our teams competed for medals, everyone trying to win points for their team – there were puppets and games and crafts and Bible verses …

If you were there, have a look at the pictures to remind yourself of all the fun we had.
If you weren't there, have a look at the pictures to see what you missed and quickly sign up for the next Holiday Club!
