The Biscuit and Bible Club (BBC for short) is a youth group for children in school years 7 upwards (there's BBC2 as well for children in school years 5 & 6). The children are an active lot and keep Cate on her toes. This is what they got up to in the Spring Term 2016.

The BBC (Bible and Biscuit Club) has put in the following bid to the Going for Growth Seed Bank for a grant:

The young people came up with an idea of having their own space, but where to put it was a difficult question as the members of the group come from different parished withing our Mission Community. Discussion ensued and they decided that there was a need to have a portable space to be used across our Mission Community for reflection, study and discussion.

BBC in Otter Valley Mission Community

BBC- Bible and Biscuit Club, the name came from the first members of the group who met together with Rev Cate Edmonds, Parish Priest in the Otter Valley Mission Community. The group started in 2012 meeting twice a month for Bible study and discussion about Christian life. Discussions centred around eating chocolate biscuits hence the name evolved.  The group was made up of church members and their interested, though not necessarily church attending, friends. The initial group was about 8 which quickly grew and in 2013 another younger group was formed, so now there are BBC2 for Year 7 upwards and BBC 2 for years 5&6. Following this success a BBC Social group was formed which meets once a month for a variety of activities e.g social action, skittles, bbqs etc.
