We shall be holding our
4th CKHC event from 24–
28th July in the Parish
Centre, Church and paddock. The theme
this year will be 'Showstoppers" - which
brings alive the 5 stories of Creation,
David and Goliath, Daniel in the lion’s
den, the Birth of Jesus, and his Crucifixion
and Resurrection. It will comprise a
fun packed schedule of Bible stories,
drama, sports, craft, song and music
activities. We anticipate over 100 primary
school age children will attend.
We hope to attract over 60 volunteers
to staff the event. Volunteer roles will
range from mini group (up to 10 kids)
leaders, assistant leaders, drama, music,
craft and sports’ leaders and helpers,
refreshment providers, security/gate,
administrators, creche and many more.
It will be an enjoyable, stimulating and
rewarding week and we are looking
forward to participation from across
the church community and the community
at large. Please make a note in your
diaries and look out for registering your
participation after Easter onwards.
This event has proven very popular
within the Cookham community and
the numbers of children able to attend
is only constrained by the number of
volunteers, especially mini group leaders
and assistant leaders, that we are
able to recruit. Please tell your friends
about this great community event and
opportunity to participate so we will be
able to have an even larger and worthwhile
club this summer.
Thanking you in advance
Chris, Christine and Angela
Soul Service October was a great success (right) next one is on Sunday 26th February at 4pm at HTC
This is a service for people who perhaps don’t come to church on a regular basis but who would like a space in their busy lives for some quiet time to relax and reflect. And stay for a glass of bubbles afterwards. Treat your self and find your "still small voice of calm". (Suggested donation of £3)
