We’ve been running a week-long summer holiday club at St Catherine’s for over 25 years now. It’s for children aged 5 – 11 and lasts 2 hours each morning.
We haven’t got our breath back from the 2017 holiday club, so we haven’t planned much for 2018 yet. However we currently expect it to run from Monday 13th August to Friday 17th, with an opening service on Sunday 11th.
Stay tuned for more details !
For an idea as to what might happen, read on for details of our 2017 club…
This year our annual Holiday Club was called “SHOWSTOPPERS”. We were joined by nearly 70 children to lift the curtain on the greatest show on earth – God’s great plan for salvation!
Every morning, through fun, games, video, stories, songs, drama and craft; we looked at a well known story from the Bible that helps us understand God’s plans for us and his creation. At the end of each morning, different groups of children had the chance to be SHOWSTOPPERS as they perform a drama or song for parents.
SHOWSTOPPERS ran from Monday 14th August to Friday 18th August, from 10am to 12noon. There was also be a special introductory service for the whole family on Sunday 13th August, starting at 10:30am.
The cost was £10 for the week, this is to cover refreshments and materials (a reduction to £5 for additional children in the same family).
On the Friday, shortly after 12.00 noon, there was a ‘Closing Celebration’ – a chance for
the whole family to enjoy highlights of the week and then stay on for lunch.
