Aims of Holiday club
  • To know that we can build a firm foundation on Jesus.
  • To build friendships and have fun.
  • To know that even though things aren’t awesome all the time, they can be better when we stick together.
  • To know that we can ‘cast all our cares on God, because He cares for us’ 1Peter 5:7
Socially distant outdoor activities
  • We are hoping that you will choose to join us for some socially distant outdoor activities in the grounds of St Margaret’s church. You could choose to come each day, to complete a different activity or just to come on 1, or 2 of the days.
  • We will be following government and diocesan advise to maintain safety during these activities. If you do come along, please follow social distancing guidelines and make sure you supervise your children during all activities
  • There will be several different activities available for you to participate in as a household (or in groups of up to 6 people).
  • If there are more than 6 people already participating in an activity, we may direct you to a different activity, or ask you to wait for a short time.
  • Please wear clothes and shoes suitable for outdoor activities and possible mess!
  • If you are feeling unwell, have a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, or have recently returned from one of the destinations that require a 14 day quarantine - then please do not come and participate in these activities. Stay at home and seek advice.
