What is a Church Holiday Club?
A Holiday Club is an exciting week full of games, crafts, challenges, songs, drama and more based on the Bible, for children in Primary school

Our Holiday Club uses teaching material from Scripture Union, a Christian organisation specialising in working with children and young people.  Their Values and Vision below are ones that we share
wholeheartedly:
 
We care. We care deeply for all children and young people.
We share. We share God's good news.
We empower. We offer choices and opportunities. 
 
Our vision: A new generation of children and young people who have a vibrant, personal faith in Jesus
 
Our mission:
To create opportunities for children and young people to explore Christian faith in a fun way appropriate to their age.  
 
General Information
We are using the Gospel of Luke: ‘A Look at Luke’ to introduce those children with little or no Church background to stories about Jesus and hopefully grow the faith of those children who are perhaps a bit more familiar with the Bible.  There is no charge for this event, although donations will be accepted should you wish to pop something in our Donations bucket.

Registration:
Pre-registering is useful, as it allows us to plan our groups, resources etc, but this is not essential.   Forms will be available by emailing: church@auchterarderparish.org or from the Auchterarder Parish Community Church Centre.  These can be filled in on paper and handed into the Centre or submitted online.
 
The Programme:
After registering each morning, we start in small groups, getting to know each other and hearing news, sharing ideas and hearing any questions.

Then we will all get together for songs, a warm up, and an introduction to the story or theme for the day.
After that, there will be a Bible story about Jesus and then a chance to learn a bit more in a way that the children can choose: quietly reading or doing a quiet activity; doing an active teaching-based activity; making a craft etc.

Snack is also offered, so knowing about any allergies etc is really important.

To finish up, there is another together time, with a quiz, the drama, learning a memory verse and a messy challenge.  Then we’ll  finish with some more singing.

The children will then go back into their small groups to write up or draw in a daily journal to help them remember the things they have learned or write down any concerns or questions they might have.

Children should be picked up by a responsible adult with whom they are familiar.
