Showstoppers! Is a children’s holiday club programme which will run for one week in August from 5th – 9th and is for children of primary school age (5- 11yrs old) which will be held in Polbeth Harwood Church.

Each day from 10am we have an exciting two and a half hour, fun packed programme of games, song, dance, craft, and drama and Bible stories to share with the children in our villages.

The theme is in the name “SHOWSTOPPERS” theatrical, music dance drama and art connecting to God’s great plan for his world – from creation and fall to redemption through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Our week will end with a Grand Finale on the evening of Friday 9th, where friends and family will be invited along to see what the children have been doing throughout the week and the transformation of the church, ending with a cuppa and a cake!

This is the first of its kind in West Calder & Polbeth, our directors are auditioning the stars who will fulfil a fun packed week ensuring all safeguarding checks are fulfilled!

Please remember us in your prayers, as an exciting adventure awaits!


Introduction to Sunday Club

We meet in the church on Sunday mornings at 9.45am during school term time. Most children sit in the front of the church on arrival. We join the congregation for the first part of the service then head out to the hall after the children’s address and hymn. There we have great fun exploring bible stories, crafts, games, music & musical instruments, dvd’s and  much more.

Sunday Club is led by Lorna, Alison, Aileen, Mhairi and Ruth

A warm welcome awaits all children and their friends to our Sunday Club.smiley
