After a year off to recharge our batteries (and build fantastic new halls!), Chat-a-Box holiday club for 7 to 11s (Years 2-6) is back at Redland Parish Church from Monday 24 July to Sunday 30 July. This year we’ll be returning to one of our most popular themes from recent years – Mission:Rescue. Prepare yourselves for a week of spies, secret missons and code-cracking!
In the mornings between 10am and 12 noon there will be drama, activities, stories, music and games all based on our theme. In the afternoons between 2pm and 4pm we will have a range of activities including climbing, horse-riding, den building, drama, football, Blast Lab, pottery, tennis and many, many more!
On Wednesday all day we will be going to the ever-popular Cattle Country as a group. We would love all Chat-a-Box children to come to this as it is always a super day out, but please note there is an extra charge. And on Friday between 6pm and 8pm there’s the Hot Dog BBQ & Bounce and legendary Chat-a-Box Disco to which parents and siblings are warmly invited. Saturday is a day off to give our field operatives time to recover before we finish the week with our Chat-a-Box family service in the Church Halls on Sunday at 10am followed by ice-creams.

Parents please note:
Lunch is not provided nor is supervision of children between the end of the morning session and the start of the afternoon activities and children must be collected by a parent or other authorised adult (18+).
C2 is the new name for Café Culture – our holiday club for young people currently in school years 7 and 8. It will be running on a similar theme (but at a level more appropriate for the older age group) and this year its timings will be the same as Chat-a-Box’s, something that parents have been asking us to do for several years now. C2 will start each day in the main hall with Chat-a-Box, then break off for their own morning activities and finish the morning back in the hall with Chat-a-Box, so that no-one misses the legendary Chat-a-Box drama! Like Chat-a-Box, C2 will break for lunch at 12 and resume at 2 for afternoon activities until 4pm. No supervision is provided during this lunchtime period, so C2 young people should leave the site and return home for lunch or you should make other lunchtime arrangements for them.
C2 will be spending all day Wednesday at an outdoor adventure centre with all sorts of activities from climbing to orienteering, zip wire and tunnel maze. We’d love everybody to come to this as it will be a brilliant day, but please note that, as with the Chat-a-Box Cattle Country trip, there is a supplementary charge for this day out.
On Friday, we will finish at 12.00 noon and in the evening there will be an end of week party alongside the Chat-a-Box Hot Dog BBQ, Disco & Bounce between 6pm and 8pm.
