Rocky’s Plaice 12th -16th August 2013

Chatburn Methodist Church was transformed into a pretend fish and chip shop, when it hosted the summer holiday club, “Rocky’s Plaice” in August this year. The holiday club was expertly led and organised by Anne and Derek Hardacre and a team of committed volunteers from both Christ Church and Chatburn Methodist Church. Some of our teenagers from around the circuit (Anna, Molly and Elizabeth) did an amazing job as team leaders organising the crafts and games for over 20 children who attended.
The theme of the week was “Rocky’s Plaice” and the children learnt all about the early church, and stories about Peter, through a range of fish-themed crafts, snacks, and games. Highlights of the week were making new friends, the daily aerobic warm up, the shark attack parachute game and the special fish and chip snacks that were served up.The week ended with a special holiday club service which families of those attending the holiday club where invited to. Items from the children included a performance of the theme song “Rocky’s Plaice” and a display of crafts and photos of the week. Thanks to Roy Porter we all enjoyed a lovely barbecue to finish a fantastic week. Photos of the week will soon be displayed in our churches in the circuit or on this blog.
