Past Events

At this year's half term Holiday Club .......

Wednesday 

Today we've been making the news with help of our presenters Marsha Mallow and Mike Raffone. We've been following the story of Moses and found out there were many others who helped him on the way.  Moses led the people out of Egypt and we made mini chariots in our craft session. We played some games and in some of them we used a big parachute. We learnt our Holiday Club song and in our teams we prepared an advert, just in case there is an ad break.

Thursday 

Today we looked at the news of the first Christmas when Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem and Jesus was born. The reporters from each channel acted the events leading up to Jesus' birth.  There was lots of fun including songs, games and for our crafts we made puppets out of spoons as well as more work on our studios.  The photocopier is still playing up and squirted Mike and Marsha with silly string.

Friday 

Our news story today was about David, who started off as a shepherd boy and ended up being a king, defeating Goliath on the way. We acted out the major events in David's life and found out that however unimportant we may be, God can use us to help others. In our crafts we made sheep and finished off our studios which Mike and Marsha were very impressed with. The photocopier went really wrong todayand even started walking around. At the end we counted up our points and found that Channel 2 and Channel 6 had the most. We're now looking forward to the special Family Edition on Saturday afternoon.

Coffee, cake, crafts, dance, singing, quiz and a cooked lunch made for a busy and enjoyable day at St Philip's first 'Holiday In' in August. Guests from the church and the community, who otherwise may have spent the day alone, appreciated the opportunity to get together during the summer period when many groups stop meeting.

A group of nine young people and five leaders from St Philips spent five days at Soul Survivor at the Bath & West Showground in Shepton Mallet In August. Soul Survivor is a Christian festival with worship, meetings, seminars and lots more attended by thousands of people.

St Philips was present at the Odd Down Cyclefest when around 2,000 people came to race and have fun at the Odd Down playing fields. The church put on pedal powered smoothies and gave out gospels, church invitations and gave Psalm readings!

 curry night  

Our Curry Night in June gave an opportunity for church and friends to eat together at the 'New Curry Garden' whilst listening to a fascinating talk titled "Heat, Hummus and Hezbollah". Nigel White acknowledged the dangers of living in the Lebanon but stated that 'the safest place to be is where God wants you to be'.
