Histon Holiday Club
Dates: 26-28th July 2022
Location: At Histon Baptist Church
For all children currently at Infant or Junior School and is advertised in the local schools during the summer term.
Plans for Holiday Club 2022 are taking shape under the working title of ‘Catastrophe Castle’. We are going to be telling three stories from the life of Jesus about people who have been rejected by society for one or another reason.
We are running Holiday Club for 3 days and will be using a marquee on the Baptist Church lawn and the main building too. The pattern for the morning will be roughly 30 minutes of presentation from the front followed by 1.5 hours of rotating around activities and a final 20 minutes back together for a final presentation. We are planning to hold an ‘alternative Olympic Games’ on one day.
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! It is run by Christians from the local churches. There is singing, messy challenges, a serial drama, games on the field, creative crafts and quieter times to chat and chill with friends both old and and new.
