What is The Big Top Holiday Club?
The Big Top Holiday Club is a 4-day fun event for children aged 4 – 11 years (school years Reception to Year 6) run by volunteers from Christ Church, Stone and Oulton Church. We aim to teach the children some basic Christian values whilst having a great time together. To get the most out of it, the children are encouraged to come on all four afternoons, as the event follows a programme of Bible teaching and drama that follows through as the Club progresses, but children can also join in for shorter periods if they can’t come every day.
The children can be safely left in our care; parents are not required to stay. Each child will be placed into a small group, based on age, with dedicated leaders who will be responsible for him or her throughout the afternoon. However, not all of the time is spent in this small group, as there are some activities that all the children participate in together. During a typical afternoon we will have times of singing action songs, doing quizzes, learning together from drama, puppets and activity sheets, making things, playing games, and having refreshments. There is no time to be bored!
The Club culminates in a special Holiday Club service at Christ Church on the Sunday morning, preceded by a breakfast to which all family members are invited. During this service we will review what the children have learnt and get a flavour of the fun they have been having during the week. We do hope that your children would like to be part of this adventure!
