Teach the Bible using Doctor Who

Doctor Reverend WhoAn enterprising vicar down in Emsworth plans to teach the Bible to kids by dressing up as Doctor Who.

The Rev Tom Kennar says, “Any child who watches Doctor Who will be familiar with the idea of time travel, so they’ll understand going back in time to meet biblical characters. I can’t promise there’ll be any Daleks or Cybermen but we will be meeting some of God’s heroes of the Bible, and some genuine villains.”

About 120 children will get to watch daily episodes of Doctor Who alongside water play, cooking and craft activities at the club, which runs from July 25 to 28 in St James’s School in Emsworth. How fun does that sound?
