Holywell Group Sunday Club

The Sunday club for children is based in the three churches of All Saints, Rockwell Green, Holy Cross, Sampford Arundel and St Margarets, Thorne St Margaret, although children throughout the team are welcome. There is a varied programme through each month, for example in Holy Cross the children play in a band. Different age groups are catered for and if a child is discouraged from going to church because there is nothing suitable where they live, they are very welcome to join in what the Sunday Club do instead.

The Big Tent 0217 - Space Academy

The Big Tent is a 3 day holiday club for Primary School-aged children run by the Wellington churches. This year's event took place on Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 & Thursday 17 August in a large marquee at Wellesley Park Primary School in Wellington, running from 10am – 3pm each day; plus a fun evening for all the family at 5.30pm on the Thursday.

The theme this year was Space Academy and inside the tent we blasted off into outer space with lots of fun activities, competitions, songs, videos & creative makes; and through the week exploring stories of Bible hero Daniel who found himself in a very strange land but was still able to trust in his faithful God. We also be spent some of each day outside playing a range of games in the brilliant school sports field. Looking forward to next year Picture of The Big Tent 2016
