Mega Makers! Holiday clubthis way

"Mega Makers! holiday club is based on Matthew's Gospel. It explores the theme of inventions, and that the more we discover about God, the vaster his love for us may seem.

We will have a weekend of creative ways to explore the stories.These few days will include craft, games, drama, creative prayer and worship. Mega Makers! has a mixture of up-front presentation and small-group activities, allowing children and leaders to build meaningful relationships with each other and with God.

The programme includes an opening Friday, an adventurous and fun filled Saturday and a closing Sunday service based on Matthew's Gospel; which will be followed by a family bring and share picnic.

This club is suitable for all 4- 11 year olds, with little or no church background as well as for children already part of the church family. 


Being held at Ryarsh Church Hall on July 27th, 28th and 29th. We will kick things off at 9am.
