2nd - 6th August 2004


The holiday club was based on holiday club resource material produced by Children's ministry . The aim was to look at various parables and the key people in them (the 'Stars') and relating them to today.


Background Information


Looking at some of the well known (or supposedly well known) stories of Jesus, not only to relate them to today, but also to see how the main characters dealt with their weaknesses. How did these key people work through their problems.

Today we hear a lot about depression and related disorders, the unforgiving world we live in. Can we provide a means of help?

The main characters of each day's story were used (some times acted, some times as a recording) to award prizes on the Friday in a Hollywood style awards ceremony. .



The names of the Halls were changed to give a "Hollywood" atmosphere.
