MORE than 100 children were dropped off by parents who left them safely registered in their 'time pods' ready for a holiday club with a time travelling theme, at St George's Church, Wash Common, Newbury.
Time travellers ready for their adventures.
The children became components of their own Time Machine, as Crazy Cogs, Fabulous Fans, Sprightly Springs, Triffic Turbos and the Time Engineers. Orchestrated by The Time Shifters, each day began with singing a specially written song about Daniel, whose trust and walk with God was the main theme of the week.
The 20 strong teenage group, renamed the Supersonics for the week, got everyone dancing before all were settled down to hear the Daniel story of the day.
The explorers then went back to their Time Pods to engage with crafts, other stories or singing related to the theme of the day. Refreshments were available at 'The Hyper-Boost' and children could also let off steam with some outside games.
Just before noon they were released from their Time Pods to return the next morning and the leaders collapsed into a well earned lunch and debrief. The week finished in real style as those who could make the Sunday morning service treated us to a wonderful Holiday Club Celebration service.
