Holiday Club 2018 -
30th July to 3rd August
Lost on Jungle Island
What is it?
Holiday Club is an annual adventure packed full of stories, songs, drama, messy challenges, quizzes, games, craft and prayers and quieter times too! This year's theme is, ‘Lost on Jungle Island’ and we embark on another extraordinary adventure, this time somewhere in Pacific Ocean. We will be joining three members of a rock band who find themselves lost on a jungle-filled island. Along the way will find out about the life of Joseph as we hear the stories of his dreams, coat, time spent in prison and how he saves millions from starvation. Head to the ‘How can I sign my children up' below to download a consent form for your child/ren.
