Holiday Club

Life Church Petersfield has always supported Holiday Club – by sending volunteers, being part of  the main team and also financially – but last year I was supported by the Life Church leaders and many of the helpers from Messy Church in stepping out with Emma and changing who the week was aimed at. We had a desire to include parents as well.

The infants became the U8s (0- school Yr 2) and ran as a Messy Church-styled event and the Juniors stayed the same, Yr 3 – 6, but with single activities to focus on for the week which were then performed or displayed to all the other children and parents on the last day.

To help with the supervision of the U8s we asked parents to accompany their children. This caused some confusion to start with but at the end of day 1 most parents had worked out that they could share the minding of their children with friends as long as they weren’t looking after more than five; it was good seeing the community coming together and helping each other out.

We took the theme 'Community' and each day looked at 'What Church is', 'Who God is', 'Who Jesus is', and 'Who the Holy Spirit is'. Peter Hollins, Judith Bee, Will Hughes and John Callaghan led the various worship times along with John Lucas who led the singing.

This year we are borrowing the theme and headings from Spring Harvest – 'God’s brilliant idea' and with a few adjustments, following parental feedback from HC 2011, the week will run along the same lines. U8s having a Messy Church week and the Juniors doing individual activities.
