About Kidz Klub
Kidz Klub was set up in 2005 by Harlow Baptist Church, with St Mary’s Churchgate Street and Freshwaters Christian Fellowship. During 2012 Freshwaters moved to a new building on the Netteswell estate and began exploring how they can work in and amongst their new community. Our prayers went with them and we wish them well as they continue their work. We look forward to working with them again in the future.
We are a Christian based club seeking to show children and families who Jesus is and how he can affect their lives, in a fun and exciting way. Our main event is in the summer holidays, but we do run other events throughout the year, normally in February and May.
All our leaders members of local churches. We have a Safeguarding policy and there are always plenty of adults and young leaders around. Our young leaders are an asset to the team as they often have more energy than the adults!
For 13 years, our Summer Holiday Club was held at Fawbert and Barnard’s School, Old Harlow, in a marquee on the field and in some of the classrooms. Kidz Klub met every morning for a week Monday to Friday from 10am to 12:30pm, running activities such as team games, craft, mega games, music, and we always have a bible story and theme for the day.
The week normally finished with a Family Fun Day after Kidz Klub on the Friday or on the following Saturday including a Kidz Klub Roadshow where parents joined in the Kidz Klub fun and saw what the children had been up to.
It was all change in 2018 as we launched the Kidz Klub Summer Festival. Five different activity mornings: Team Quest, Arts & Crafts, Sports & Fitness, Creative Arts and Prayer Adventure. This format has continued and proves to be extremely popular with the children. For 2 days, they get into teams with their friends and complete all the activities, and for the other 3 days, they choose what they want to do for the whole morning. Each day we look at the same bible story learning something new every time. All that, together with Kidz Klub songs, quizzes and silly games, what more could you want?
