From 12 to 50
No, that is not the age profile for the numbers attending the holiday club at Durham over the past few years, but a sign of its growth.
12 turned up on the first day a few years ago and it grew through the week to around twenty. It has now grown to be about 50 and has led to a midweek children’s club called Heroes and Sunday School has been transformed into Sunday Heroes. It has become a great opportunity for children to have fun learning about Jesus and the week ending with a Creative Church Sunday (a variation on Messy Church) which has always drawn a good number of non-church parents. Over the past two years the church has established a summer event for those young people who have outgrown the holiday club.
These encouragements are made possible by the support the church receives from Home Mission.
