Bridge Holiday Club is a yearly holiday club for children in school years 3-6. The club takes place in the summer half-term from Wednesday to Sunday from 11am-1pm and draws between 50 and 60 children each day. It is staffed by over 20 volunteers mainly from Edward Road but assisted by Birmingham City Mission and Reach Across.
Modelled on Birmingham City Mission’s Solid Rock kids club, it offers a fun-packed two hours of activities, a Bible story & drama, quizzes, group discussion time and games. It is incredibly popular with our diverse community and attendance has been rising year on year.
Each year, nearly all the children and many parents have come on the last day of the club to a special kids club themed service and were invited to join the congregation in a time of fellowship afterwards over cakes and tea and halal snacks.
Sadly, we were not able to run the club in 2020, but we hope to run it again as soon as the Covid pandemic allows.
