In England we have one full-time missionary, Kate Macnab, and one part-time missionary, Angeline White, both based in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. Between them and a small team of volunteers they run Bible Clubs, Mums and Toddler groups, support their local churches and run summer camps.
Camps in England are run each summer in a well-equipped residential centre in Somerset and have consistently proved to be a great opportunity to show children and teens the gospel lived out. JaM (Jesus and Me) Camp is for 8-11 year olds and Get Real! is for 12-15 year olds.
In Northern Ireland our camp site at Mullartown House, Annalong is run by full-time missionaries Scott and Joanna Widman. With a large team of volunteers they co-ordinate children’s, young teens, senior teens, extreme teens and family weeks through the summer. Throughout the year they host camp reunions, club and other church group weekends. Also based at Mullartown House are Gemma (full-time) and Jason Hill (part-time) who run Bible study groups, work in local schools, run ‘Mullartown On Tour’ as well as helping in the local church and with the production of brochures. Naomi Fox, a full-time volunteer based in the Lisburn area, leads ‘Bible Explorer’ and assemblies in primary schools as well as Bible Clubs, children’s fun days and ladies meetings. BCM Northern Ireland is blessed with many volunteers who run/help with all our activities.

BCM has seven workers in Scotland, some full-time and some self-supporting: Stanley and Irene Paget, Audrey Golder, Fiona Blyth and Steve & Liz Marr work in and around the Glasgow area and Mary Barclay in the Central region. In addition to Bible Clubs, taking school assemblies, supporting local churches and running summer camps and five day holiday clubs, the Scottish team also run extremely popular Women’s Weekends of teaching and encouraging. Additional ministries include counselling, and training in the technique of Inductive Bible Studies. In recent years the team have also developed visuals for BCM’s Footsteps of Faith Bible teaching material in an electronic format.
BCM has been running camps in Scotland since 1957. They have always had a family atmosphere as most of our staff first came to camp as children and have continued to return. We run three camps a year: Spring ‘Minicamp’ which is ideal for 8-12 year olds who haven’t been away from home before; and two weeks of camp in summer, one for 8-12 year olds and one for teenagers. Each camp has a varied programme of games, sports, crafts, competitions, drama and music, all designed to bring out the best in the camper and help them grow physically and spiritually. Our camps are supported by several senior youth who take leading roles.
Enquiries about Scottish camps should be directed to Stan & Irene Paget.
