Holiday Club 2018 will be in a new format - two days Thursday and Friday 2nd and 3rd August from 9-3.15. The theme will continue the sagas of Ancora, with the Treasure Seekers. An application form will be available shortly on this website.

In July 2017, children enjoyed the Guardians of Ancora Holiday Club week of fun. The party was held on January 27th 2018. 

Guardians, lighted by their firebug lanterns, joined the quest for the lost story-treasures of Ancora. They found more about who Jesus is through five bible stories: Jesus calling the fishermen, Luke 5: 1-7; Jesus healing the Roman officers' servant, Luke 7: 1-10; Jesus healing a woman and a girl, Luke 8: 40-48 and 49-56; Jesus healing a man who came through the roof, Luke 5:17-26; and feeding the five thousand with five loaves and two fish, John 6:1-15.

The Summer Holiday Club provides five mornings of fun in the first full week of the Summer holidays. Our annual holiday club fills two churches, and the land between, with a lot of noise and laughter.

This is a joint project between The URC, St.Augustine's CE and St.Laurence CE churches with additional help from members of other churches in the area.

The stories, teaching, drama, crafts, games, singing, competition and videos centre on stories from the bible. The teaching during the week points the children to God's love for us.

In 2016, holiday club children enjoyed being Mega Makers.

In the 2015 Polar Explorers Club, with the help of Gemma, Blizz, Sir Random Finds and Bare Feet, the children learned that no-one is too young, bad or anything to be part of God's big expedition. They can be a friend of Jesus and go out and help others be friends of Jesus too.



The summer 2014 club was named 'Mission Rescue' and told the story of Moses and the release of the israelites from slavery in Egypt.

The Summer 2009 club was 'Waste Watchers'
