Southover’s summer Holiday Club is always a highlight of the year for both the children and for the adults who get involved!
The atmosphere is energetic and joyful, new friendships are made and new gifts and skills found. We also get the privilege of sharing the gospel and our faith to children, who get to meet Jesus in different ways through every aspect of the club.
Can you help us?
Each year the numbers rise and this year we hope to attract our maximum of 100 children to the club. For this we need a large team of leaders and helpers to look after the children and make it a great week for them.
What will we be doing?
Drama, Games, Singing and easy crafts… you name it! There are lots of roles required to help us make the club a success: as well as group leaders we will need people to help on the registration desk and refreshment area, to welcome parents and offer hospitality at the Barbecue on Friday afternoon, people to help decorate the church for holiday club, musicians and drama fans, first aiders, and most importantly of all smiley people to work alongside the children, supporting the leaders.
We will provide plenty of support and information to ensure you are confident in whichever role you feel you can fulfil. Chat to someone who has helped at Holiday Club before, or call us to talk about what is involved if this will be your first Holiday Club outing. If you’d like to know more about a specific area, you can chat to the following people:

How much time do I need to commit?
For most of the roles, we ask that ideally volunteers commit to the club for the four days that it runs, Tuesday 29th July – Friday 1st August from 9am to 1:30pm each day.
In addition we will be running a leaders BBQ and team meeting on Saturday 28th June 5pm-7:30pm. This will be important opportunity to meet the rest of the team, pray for the week and to receive important information you will need to know in order to run the club. There will also be a final meeting on the evening of Monday 28th July which all volunteers must attend.
