Holiday Clubs - We run a holiday club with the local
Anglican and Methodist churches - we (the Baptist Church) tend to do most of the organising and it is always in our premises as we have a lot of space and no pews, but the others are great in support
and both leaders are invaluable during the week as their music and craft skills compliment our folks! We then have a united final service where the whole village is invited and is a mini club day -
crucially with a prize giving.
I thought the idea of inviting teenagers from other churches to help is a great idea and we will do that but remember that if they are under 18 they should be included as children in any adult children ratio. Also, they can not be given adult leader status - we include them as helpers ie not with full responsibilities - they should be included in any safeguarding talk etc.
The webinar mentions many resources. Details of these can be found in this document.
