Holiday Club 2019 – Backpackers
We’ve been running a week-long summer holiday club at St Catherine’s for over 25 years now. It’s for children aged 4 – 11 and lasts 2 hours each morning.
The 2019 Holiday Club is entitled ‘Backpackers’. With a travel theme, there’s plenty of exploring, fun and games, making, songs, drama and more, as the children journey through European cities.
At Backpackers, children will travel with Jesus as he arrives in Jerusalem and explore the events of his last week on earth through the awesome accounts from the Gospel of Matthew. There’ll be the normal mixture of Fun, Games, Craft, Bible Stories and Songs, plus the chance to perform Drama and Song.
Backpackers will take place from Monday 12th August to Friday 16th, from 10am to 12noon. These is also an opening ‘preview’ service for all the family on Sunday 11th August at 10:30am.
The cost is £10 for the week, this is to cover refreshments and materials (a reduction to £5 for additional children in the same family).
Registration forms are now ready. If you haven’t already got one, please collect one from church, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please return them by 19th July. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

2018 – Rocky’s Plaice
We revisited ‘Rocky’s Plaice’ back in 2018. Rocky not only runs a fish and chip shop, but he also runs a church which meets in his shop. He’s not the most organised of people, so chaos ensues.
Using this fun theme, we were looking at stories in the book of Acts through the eyes of Peter (another Rocky).
On Friday we ended with our traditional Fish & Chip lunch – an idea introduced 8 years previously during our first visit to Rocky’s Plaice.
