Easter Holiday Club
We hold a yearly Holiday Club over Easter. Our 2013 Holiday saw the church being taken over by spies for our Mission Rescue Holiday Club. Spies showed up their skills and heard about a couple of God’s rescue missions: when God used Moses to rescue the Israelites from Egypt and then God’s ultimate rescue mission in Jesus!
The Holiday Club has been run every year since 1993 by different organisers including Church Workers, Nottingham University students and members of the church.
Holiday Club 2013:
Theme: Mission Rescue
Date: Monday 8th April until Friday 12th April
What a week! Our 2013 was a great success, with 26
children spies coming through the doors of our Spy Training Centre. We developed our spy skills, through games, competitions and skills tests. We heard about God’s rescue missions, including the one led by Moses to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and God’s ultimate rescue Mission in Jesus. We even solved the kidnapping of our Chief Spy – Colin!
Holiday Club will be back again next Easter! Details will be available as they become known. Sarah Butcher, our Church Family Worker can give you more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to stay with my child/children? No. We have a team of leaders experienced in looking after children and leading activities. During registration we will take contact details so should there be an emergency or any problem we can contact you.
How much does it cost? It is completely free. The church willingly puts on the Holiday Club as part of its work in the community. If you really really want to give us some money, you could offer it to this year’s Church Charity.
I/my child(ren) can only come for 1 day/some days. Can they still come? Yes, they can come. There is a theme throughout the week and a developing storyline, but we will explain what has happened previously. Any of the days will work on their own, although for the best experience we recommend coming to as many of the days as possible.
Can my 4 year old child come? Maybe. We are happy to accept any children that are in reception to year 6. Some 4 year olds are in reception, but some are not. It is easier to say ages 5 to 11, but we are happy to have any 4 year olds that have started school.
Do I need to wear or bring anything? We provide all of the equipment for holiday club. You can come as you are, or if you have outfit that matches the theme, you may like to wear it!
Do I need to book ahead? No, but it’s helpful if you do to give us an idea of numbers. If we find on the day that we are exceptionally busy, we may have to people turn away. Anyone that has booked is guaranteed a place. To book, get in contact with Sarah or the church office.
Can I fill out the registration form ahead of time? Yes, you can! You don’t need to though. Sarah can email you a copy, or if you arrange ahead can get one to you. You can then either get it straight back to Sarah or bring it on the Holiday Club morning. This will save time on the day.
