Kids Club

Holiday Kids Club

ARRANGEMENTS are now well in hand for our 13th annual Kids Club which will take place over a full week (morning) during the school summer holidays.

This year this Bible-based holiday club will take place from Monday, 7th August, to Friday, 11th August, with the theme of Something Fishy. This will be followed by a service on Sunday, 13th August, which will be led by the Kids Club team.

This time there will be an underwater theme - Somerthing Fishy - and bookings are now open.

GRANNIES' GANG was a superb theme for the 2016 Holiday Kids Club.

The usual double act featuring "Crazy Christine" and Naomi were recast as the two grannies swapping tea and stories in the living room at a retirement home.

In this great setting they met up with all sorts of people who seemed to be related in some way to some Biblical giants of faith - characters like Daniel, who loved lions; Rahab, who assisted two spies sent into Jericho by Joshua; Queen Esther, who helped to save her people; David, who felled a giant; and Naomi and her daughter-in-law Ruth who became great friends.

The stories were developed through a series of front-of-house adventures, including the capture of a "burglar", the appearance of a secret agent disguised as a standard lamp, and Granny Christine trying out a mobility scooter.

There was also a hilarious video showing how the two grannies failed to get to London to see the Queen - ending up arriving late for Kids Club in the middle of the week.

The usual mix of Bible story, crafts, games, and songs made it a great week for the 60-plus kids who came along.

This was the 12th Holiday Kids Club at Southlands. In previous years Kids Club week has involved building an ark and in 2015 we had mad scientists with a story machine.
