Sports Quiz

While thinking about the upcoming Commonwealth Games, Susan, our Family Development Worker, had a look at the ‘More than Gold’ website, which gave a link to ‘Christians in Sport’ who organise a DVD sports quiz package. This gives everything a congregation needs to organise a family sports fun quiz complete with posters and a DVD of questions/clips.

As part of our outreach, Abronhill Church will be holding a Family Fun Sports Quiz on Thursday 10 April at 7pm . This will be open to the whole community and anyone who wishes may enter a team. More information can be obtained from Susan or anyone from the Church. Hopefully there will be some goodies available also.
