Each year, during the first week of the Summer Holidays, Copmanthorpe Primary and Pre-primary aged children enjoy a week packed with exciting activities all set within a magnificent drama set. Our church building is completely transformed into a new world that matches our theme for the week.
Past sets have included Ancient Egypt, complete with Sphinx, under the sea complete with a yellow submarine, a Super Sleuth Agency, complete with working Time Machine. We have also spent time on tropical islands complete with pirates, we’ve travelled through space, passing through galaxies and we’ve come down to earth in fun filled fairgrounds.
Through an action packed time, children learn more about a Bible character or explore a Bible passage. Children take part in singing, dancing, team games, watch daily puppet shows, are creative in craft activities and share special times in their teams for discussion, study and prayer.
All this fun and learning is possible each year due to the dedication, enthusiasm and creativity of a large team of volunteers. These volunteers live in Copmanthorpe and attend both village churches as well as churches beyond Copmanthorpe. We are especially appreciative of our many young people volunteers, whose skill, energy and enthusiasm enhance the week.
Holiday Club is a great learning journey, for both the children and our volunteers. Holiday Club week enables everyone to share fun, supportive friendship, discovery and worship.
This years them is Landlubbers – expect lots of pirate fun.
