RENEW Holiday Club

July 2016


There is so much I’d like to write about this month especially having just returned from a week in the Jungle, Calais with two of my children; so many stories to tell, some of which you may have heard at the village fete, and there are several really exciting things happening at RENEW, but the main thing I need to highlight at this time is the return of our RENEW Summer Holiday Club at Bottisham Primary School. The club will run from Monday 25th July ’til Thursday 28th July, from 9.45-12.30. Details will be sent through Primary School communication channels and through local churches. A contribution towards costs of £5 per child (for the whole 4 days) or £10 per family where more than one child is taking part would be appreciated. The club is open to children from Reception to Year 6 inclusive based on the school year that is coming to an end. If your child / grandchild would like to take part, please do get in touch with me or Peter & Ann Wells for registration details.

We have so much fun planned, lots of games, crafts, stories, music – it will be a great week. Our theme is ‘the 4 points’ a series of symbols that help people young and old alike to gain an understanding of and easily communicate the essence of the Good News of the Christian faith (

It is important for me to make clear that this is a Holiday Bible Club so there will be Christian content; however I can also give assurance that the message will be communicated in a very gentle, age appropriate, sensitive and fun manner, and whilst opportunity will be given to reflect on the themes and to respond in various ways, nothing will be imposed on anybody.

We are excited for what God has in store for RENEW and have been blessed to regularly welcome new folk into our church family, either as a result of our website (, these articles, or personal invitation. We would love you to join us.

Please do get in touch with any questions or comments – we are here for you!
