We’ve been running a week-long summer holiday club at St Catherine’s for over 25 years now. It’s for children aged 4 – 11 and lasts 2 hours each morning.
The 2018 Holiday Club is entitled ‘Rocky’s Plaice’. Rocky not only runs a fish and chip shop, but he also runs a church which meets in his shop. He’s not the most organised of people, so chaos ensues.
This will be a fun theme, looking at stories in the book of Acts through the eyes of Peter (another Rocky). There’ll be the normal mixture of Fun, Games, Craft, Stories, Drama and Songs.
The dates are Monday 13th August to Friday 17th with an opening service on Sunday 12th August.
We’ll be printing and delivering invitations in due course, but we’re letting you know now so that you keep those dates free!
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.
