Peasedown youngsters shine at summer holiday club


More than sixty children in Peasedown St John took part in three action-packed days of fun and games last week. St John’s Church, with a dedicated team of children’s workers, hosted the SJs All Stars Holiday Club – which featured the very best entertainment for primary school aged children on 9th, 10th and 11th August.

Rob Bubyer, children’s pastor at St John’s Church, said:

‘‘Thank you to all the children who came along to this year’s summer holiday club. Our church holiday clubs for children have become so popular that we now host six a year, instead of the two or three we’ve put on in previous years. St John’s has a growing children’s ministry that is doing more and more each week to engage and enthuse young people in our village.”

This year’s summer get together allowed children to explore the Bible, make new friends, sing songs, learn how Jesus works through them in their everyday lives and bounce on the BIG inflatable obstacle course.

Rob added: “We looked at Jesus the miracle worker. He began His earthly ministry by performing His first miracle of turning water into wine. From that point on, Jesus established Himself as someone with supernatural power beyond mortal human beings.  Jesus didn’t stop performing miracles when His earthly ministry ended. No way! He continues to perform miracles today. In fact, He wants to perform miracles both in and through each one of us. All we have to do is trust and believe.”

Revd Matthew Street added:

“These children’s holiday clubs are in addition to work we’re doing across the community. At St John’s church, which is part of the wider St J’s Group of Anglican churches, we run regular school assemblies, after-school clubs, breakfast clubs, seasonal holiday clubs, and four children’s groups every Sunday. We also hold our Sunday afternoon worship meetings at Peasedown Youth and Children’s Centre.

The SJ’s All Stars Holiday Club also included a family picnic at the end of the week, which was kindly funded by Peasedown St John Parish Council and organised by volunteers from Peasedown Methodist Church.
