The main focus of the Fun Week is the Holiday Club for children aged between 5 and 11 years. It runs from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Admaston House. The morning is split into sections, some of which are detailed below, and each day has a particular theme and bible message.
Each day we have a short drama, about 5 minutes long. We will follow the adventures of ordinary people from the bible who are used by God to do extraordinary things , as they face challenges and become Super Heroes.
About halfway through the morning we split the children into two age groups and send half to do craft and half to do games.
In the craft session they make something related to the days topic and story. In the past there have been joke flowers, lion masks and juggling balls. At the end of the day, anything that a child has made they can take home and keep.
The daily games section gives a chance to stretch some legs and get outside. The game of the day is always done in teams and has in the past been relay races, a tug of war and other similar games. The team leaders and helpers will be out for support, however they have been known to join in with some events.
Once games have finished everyone heads back inside for a drink, biscuit and a discussion about the days story and what they think it means.
This year we are focusing on a different character from the bible each day. Their story will be explored throughout all aspects of the holiday club. There are lots of challenges and activities for the children to be involved with, interspersed with times of teaching and discussions about Christian beliefs and life.
