Keyworth Churches CYP Holiday Club has been running in its current form for the past ten years. It is run by a team of volunteers from Keyworth churches and led by youth and families’ worker, Andy Proffitt.
This year we welcomed around 80 children of primary school age to five mornings of activity under the theme of “Mega Makers”. In our all-together times we followed the adventures of Professor Brainwave and Boffin as they found out how to use the Mega Machine and foiled the evil plans of the evil Dr Upton O’Good – as well as singing, finding out about Jesus’ friend, Matthew - and throwing custard pies.
In our group times, we completed a different type of challenge each day; for example, our engineering challenge involved designing and testing an egg protection system! We found out more about Jesus through the story of Matthew, played outdoor team games and made lots of construction models. On Friday, 160 children and family members stayed for the traditional BBQ and play on the field, and we rounded off on Sunday with an all-age joint service hosted by Keyworth Baptist Church.
