Church fun in hol­i­days

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

The De­niliquin Unit­ing Church and De­niliquin Bap­tist Church have come to­gether this sum­mer to pro­vide a pro­gram of school hol­i­day fun.

The pro­gram runs from Jan­uary 21 to 25 at the Unit­ing Church, on the cor­ner of Ed­wardes and Poic­tiers Sts in De­niliquin.

For some lo­cal chil­dren it will be the fi­nal week of school hol­i­days, with term one for eastern divi­sion schools start­ing Tues­day, Jan­uary 29.

At western divi­sion schools — in­clud­ing all De­niliquin, Conargo, Mathoura, and Bun­naloo gov­ern­ment schools, plus St Michael’s and De­niliquin Chris­tian schools — term one starts a week later on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 5.

For each day of the United Church’s hol­i­day pro­gram, ac­tiv­i­ties will be held be­tween 9.30am and 11.30am.

Su­san Strong from the De­niliquin Bap­tist Church said chil­dren can en­joy ac­tiv­i­ties like singing, games, craft, sto­ries and skits.

‘‘We’re giv­ing kids some­thing to do in the hol­i­days while teach­ing them about God through the ac­tiv­i­ties,’’ she said.

The pro­gram is aimed at pri­mary school aged chil­dren, and there is no need to pre­book to par­tic­i­pate in the ses­sions. Sim­ply go along on the day.

There is a cost of $2 per ses­sion, per child, which will help with the pro­vi­sion of morn­ing tea.

This is the 22nd year the De­niliquin Unit­ing Church has been in­volved in the hol­i­day pro­gram. It cel­e­brated the 21st year in 2018 with a Com­mon­wealth Games themed week.
