Our theme this year was "Superfruits - Nine a day". We focused
on God filling us with good things – the fruits of His Spirit.
We listened to Bible stories, sang songs – a lovely one by Pat and
another from YouTube. (Both are good ways to remember the fruits,
though the second is rather an “ear worm”!)
We also did lots of craft activities, played some excellent games,
prayed – and ate fruity refreshments.
Here's that Youtube video...
Fifty eight children came throughout the week. Under 5s with Mums,
Dads and Grandparents had fun too! Pop up café met Holiday
Club on Wednesday AND we had a BBQ on the Thursday evening at the
Youth Club on the Recreation Ground.
Thanks to Paul – and all the Holiday Club helpers. Here's more about
We heard how God helped Abraham to be PATIENT and wait for his
son Isaac who then was one of Jesus' great, great, great………

that joy can stand for putting Jesus
first, Others second and
The children made a bottle top apple with Vicky's help. Another
group led by Alan and Sheena made a Fruits of the Spirit tree.
Jenny helped us understand FAITHFULNESS telling us the
story of the important general, Naaman, who had a nasty skin
disease. His wife’s maid (a young girl) trusted our God (different
from who Naaman worshipped) and told Naaman about God and His
prophet Elisha. The girl was faithful to God – and when Naaman
overcame his stubbornness and sense of self importance he was
healed! (Read the full story in 2Kings:5.)
The Popup café was at Holiday Club too – yummy!
Jerry (and friends) acted out the story of the GOOD
Samaritan – he was KIND even to someone who would normally
have acted in a racist way to him. Well done Samaritan (and Jerry
for getting two fruits in the same story as well as ending up
covered in flour and ketchup!)
We all had the chance to use ketchup at the yummy BBQ.
Barbara says she had a lovely time and hopes everyone else did too.
