It started with Pyramid Rock…then it was Starship Discovery…eight years later we had this years Adventure Cruise! For the last few years we have run a Holiday Club with the young people of Ness and farther afield. The club is held each summer in Lionel school and continues to grow in size, complexity and fun! This is a full-on week of fun, based around a different Bible theme each year.
We have been blessed to have a talented team of volunteers from within the Congregation who help out in the preparation and running of the Club each year. We usually have a team of about 16 helping out and we have had up to 48 young people coming along to Bible-themed and age appropriate Bible teaching, crafts, games, drama, music, songs, memory verses and much more! Over the years the kids have got to know some amazing Holiday Club characters such as Percy and Cora the parrots (and new arrivals this year Pearl and Dean), the 118 team, Captain Ketchup, Yo Ho & Heave Ho the Pirates and, of course, the Watt Family.
All adult helpers in the team have had Disclosure Scotland checks done. The material we have used over the years has been adapted from Clubs arranged by Scripture Union and John Hardwick. We hope to see you next year!
