Annual Bible Contest

By CSI East Parade Malayalam Pastorate, Bangalore

38th Annual Bible Contest(ABC 2020)

2020 was a tough year for most people around the world due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, when most things that we take for granted, suddenly became a dream. The ensuing Pandemic restrictions did not allow us to conduct the exam by physically seating children in our Church premises, as was done in the past 37 years. But God’s Grace is sufficient for us. He enabled us to conduct ABC 2020 as an Online exam, thereby allowing 213 children from across 11 Churches to participate in the exam from the safe premises of their homes. This also gave us the opportunity to extend the exam to children outside Bangalore, which would not have been possible otherwise. We thank God for His grace and providence.

It was decided not to offer positional prizes in the context of this exam being held online. Scores were made known to participants on completing their exam. A Merit List with the names of all children who scored above a cut-off mark was published.

39th Annual Bible Contest(ABC 2021)

The 39th Annual Bible Contest (ABC 2021) will God-willing be held on 31st October,2021, for all children below 17 years of age. Details can be found in the adjoining poster.
