Holiday Club

It's that time of year again when 'Christians Together in Sawston' are gearing up for a week of fun, frolics and heart-warming moments at Holiday Club.

Bramble Grove Holiday Club will run from 29th July to 2nd August 2019 from 9.30am-3.30pm daily at the Bellbird School in Sawston.

Holiday Club has grown year-on-year since it began in 2016 and we would love not to have to turn any children away this year. However, in order to achieve that we will need an increased base of helpers.

If you feel able to help out in any way, either before the event or during the week itself, we would really appreciate your input. There are many activities that need to be fulfilled including: craft preparation, refreshments, security, site preparation and administrative duties as well as working directly with the children. Whether you can help for just a few hours, one day or the whole week it will make a difference to the children's lives.

Everyone who has been involved with Holiday Club over the years has gained as much from the experience as the children have! The children enjoy crafts, games, Bible stories, singing, crafts and prayer activities. The adults can gain much from the purity of the children's insights, the questions that they ask and the sheer joy of them coming to know something of what it means to live a life in relationship with Christ.

If you can help in any way please do get in touch by e-mailing (please do not use the 'reply all' option)
