A HIGH-TECH, multimedia, mobile classroom - Bibleworld Mobile - will be visiting Rothesay from April 29 to May 3.

Brought in by the Scottish Bible Society, local school children and other groups will be enjoying this highly acclaimed education resource that delights, entertains and educates its visitors.

The huge ‘Tardis-like’ trailer, containing what is effectively a travelling classroom including six activity zones, will be parked at Rothesay Joint campus, allowing visitors to use the multimedia computer to bring the Bible to life.

The 45 ft, 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.

Extending beyond the school day, local adults and accompanied children can experience Bibleworld Mobile for themselves by visiting on our open sessions on Wednesday, May 1 from 2-3.30pm or Thursday, May 2, from 7-9pm.

“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 coordinators 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. We are continuing to promote the Bible as God’s Word for today, and to make it available to all in appropriate and relevant forms. It is important that people have the opportunity to experience the richness of the Bible’s story and its place in our culture; Bibleworld certainly helps in that.”
