Cookham Kids’ Holiday Club 30 July to 3 August 2018 at Holy Trinity Church, Cookham

kids club We have had a fantastic time at Kids’ Club - both children and helpers.
The theme of the week was MegaMakers based on Ephesians and explored the theme of inventions. We have therefore been learning about the breadth and depth of God’s love for us all through craft, drama, sport and music. We have also learned a new song which we have been singing all week - “Wide and Long and High and Deep” which has enough actions to make us feel as if we’ve done a complete workout every morning!
We had our very own Mega Machine on stage, invented by Professor Boffin and his apprentice Brainwave, which had the ability to enlarge anything placed inside it - turning a piece of bread into a whole loaf, a small ball into a large one and a small bottle of water into a large bucket of water - we are still trying to find out how it did this! The machine demonstrates the concept of things getting bigger which parallels the theme of MegaMakers - the more we discover about God the vaster his love for us may seem.
A big thank you to all our helpers who did a wonderful job in looking after the children and providing such fabulous activities for them.
