In August 2017, our annual Holiday Club became Guardians of Ancora (by Scripture Union). Each day the Younger Guardians (children) had to find the lost treasure to unlock that day’s story and bring the light back to the city!
Assisted by our Keeper, Shiner, Fabula, Bert and Lucy and the Elder Guardians, story treasures were found by the Younger Guardians, the stories retold and the Spire of Light grew brighter day by day. We also had daily crafts which linked in with the stories, daily scrolls and activity books.
Complimenting some Holiday Club favourites, was the Guardians of Ancora theme song and the memory verse song, God is Love.
Another first this year was the addition of the Youth group, who came up with the brilliant actions for our theme song.
And don’t forget the week’s memory verse: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.” Matthew 22:37.
There is also a Scripture Union Guardians of Ancora mobile app (currently available to download for free via Google Play, Apple App Store and Kindle Fire). This app is suitable for 8 – 11 year olds, helps bring Bible stories to life and is complementary to the activities that took place at this year’s Holiday Club.
