Frozen fun for Stonelaw kids
It was an ice time all round at Stonelaw Parish Church recently.
Their summer club was in full swing, aided by the Cambuslang & Rutherglen Reachout Trust.
As with many of the local clubs, the theme was Polar Explorers, giving a frosty feel to the week’s event and activities.
Rev Alistair May said the week long club was a great hit with youngsters.
He said:“It’s been a fantastic week and we had over 70 kids as part of it.
“We even had a girl crying on the last day because it was over, so the kids have really enjoyed themselves.
“There’s been singing, lots of games, crafts, some bible studies and plenty of chances for them all to run around.
“I ended up with my feet in water as part of it at one point, as part of the games!”
The club also showed a selection of family films in the afternoon for the kids to enjoy, and held a BBQ for parents and children, that luckily took place on a day with nice weather.
Alistair added:“It’s part of what we try and do with the church, which is engage with the community.
“We try to make connections and build relationships.
“Not all of the children who came to the club are part of the church, or they go to different churches, but it’s about reaching out to everyone.”
And he was delighted by the hard work the volunteers put in.
“We had around 20 volunteers, who gave up their holidays or took time off work to help.
“We’re really grateful for that.”
Arts and crafts were on offer
