2012 Summer Holiday Club
Our Holiday Club was called ‘On Your Marks ..‘ It had a distinctly olympic flavour – and a beautiful play on words. The Biblical material was taken from St. Mark’s Gospel! The club ran on two occasions and in two venues throughout the first and the last weeks of the school holidays.
The first club was in the Village Hall, Stentonand the second was in the Community Hall, East Linton. In total, 53 children participated in the two clubs and almost 40 adults joined together to form the leadership teams.
Both clubs, worked in Athletic Villages at the Olympics – the Awesome Americans, the Funky French etc. The DVD contained lots of interviews with Christian sportsmen and women who shared their difficulties as well as their successes in a humble, hopeful and honest way. The highlights of both clubs were the homemade canoes – and fishing for beanbags in the parks!
2011 Summer Holiday Club
In 2011, the club was called ‘Wastewatchers’ and it was held in the first and last weeks of the school summer holidays.
