Holiday Club

  

 

Every summer holiday Stocksfield Churches jointly run a children's holiday club for a week. Last July, about 70 children and teenagers from the Stocksfield area and about 30 adults from various local churches had a fantastic week at the Polar Explorers Holiday Club. The church was transformed with an igloo entrance and lots of icicles and snowflakes. With stories, jokes, singing, drama, Bible discovery, games, construction and more, there was lots of fun for everyone; as well as discovering what it's like to be part of God's Big Expedition!

 

 

We never know the full effect on those who take part, but one teenager told us that all she knows about Jesus has been learnt at our holiday clubs and now she's seriously wanting to follow him; a ten-year old boy decided he'd like to follow Jesus and is going to be baptised; and about 15 younger children took advantage of an opportunity to ask their own questions about God and Jesus and what it means to be a member of "God's Big Expedition" - in other words, to go the way he wants us to, to become his friend, to ask him to take away the bad stuff in our lives, and to follow him for ever.
