A ‘Tardis-like’ trailer is set to create quite a stir in Brechin later this month, when the Bibleworld Mobile parks up at Brechin High School.

The high-tech, multimedia, mobile classroom will be brought in by the Scottish Bible Society, allowing local school children and other groups the opportunity to enjoy this highly acclaimed education resource that delights, entertains and educates its visitors.

The vehicle contains a travelling classroom with six activity zones and will be parked at Brechin High School, Duke Street, from Monday, August 26, to Friday, August 30.

Using the multimedia computer activities and involving visitors through hands-on experiences, the facility is designed to bring the story of the Bible to life.

Since its launch in 2005, more than 50,000 children and adults have enjoyed the Bibleworld programme.

The 45 foot, 14 ton vehicle is being taken to towns and villages throughout Scotland and churches are encouraged to invite the trailer to their area for use by the whole of the community and in Brechin is supported by Brechin Churches Together.

Extending beyond the school day, local adults and accompanied children can experience Bibleworld Mobile for themselves by visiting on our open evening on Monday and Wednesday.

“This popular trailer is getting out and about throughout the country,” says Elaine Duncan, chief executive of the Scottish Bible Society.

“From lowlands to highlands, from cities to island villages, people are being delighted with what they are experiencing.

“This really is the Scottish Bible Society on the road – helping folk know more about the Bible, its message and the impact it continues to have around the world.

“Our two experienced co-ordinators are working hard taking the story of the Bible to schools and youth groups wherever the invitation comes from.

“We are showing that even after nearly 200 years of work we still have vital work to do.”
