We have lift-off!
Melton Team Parish Holiday Club got off to a flying start in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, on Monday (August 5th) when it launched into space and landed on the planet Zog!
The theme of the club, which runs until Friday (August 9th) and is for children aged five to 11, is Earth Warriors.
At the end of the Team Parish Holiday Club week there will be a Holiday Club Service on Sunday, 11th August, in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray. Please do come along and show your support for the children and especially for the leaders who will have worked manfully (and woman-fully!) during the previous week!
Come and join us for breakfast (croissants and drinks) at 9.30am onwards, and then the service will be from 10am. There will also be an opportunity to engage in some eco-friendly crafts from 9.30 onwards. For these we need cardboard egg-boxes (please bring any you have to the church office, or leave on the table at the back of church). We would also like you to decorate a stone... either before the service or on the day...
*Find or buy large pebbles or cobbles;
*Decorate your pebble (you don't have to paint them white first!) - on the back, write: "If found, please post a photo on St Mary's Parish Church Melton Mowbray page on Facebook!"
*Rocks can be decorated using paint, chalk, Sharpie pens, glitter etc. Please include a Bible verse or reference and make sure your designs are child-friendly;
*Bring your pebbles to the Holiday Club Service for further instructions.
