A Lionheart holiday club is a five-day event for children, held in a church. Each day there is a fast moving, entertaining two-hour programme, designed for children to enjoy themselves as they learn the truth about God and about themselves. OM’s Kids ‘n’ Things children’s ministry team works in partnership with the church members to run the club. A Lionheart holiday club can be a useful event to bring in children from the community who do not usually attend church. Our aim is then to channel these children into the ongoing children’s work of the church. Although some children may become Christians during the holiday club it is often during the ongoing contact with Christians that children make a commitment. A Lionheart club is suitable for all primary school age children (4-11 years old). Some churches run a family service at the end of the week, which the children and their families are invited to.
There are so many people all over the world that don’t know Jesus. Do you want to do something about that? We are on a mission to put a vibrant community of Jesus followers in everyone’s reach, especially where there is not already a local church present. Come join REACH in South Africa to be prepared and equipped together with other likeminded people from all over the globe to do just that. You will be trained in practical skills, challenged to grow as a disciple of Jesus, and guided to find your strategic place in world missions!

Retiring into missions In their mid-sixties, Kiwis Pam and Alan retired. Sort of. “You don’t retire and suddenly that’s it,” Alan explained. “You just continue on involved in the Kingdom but with some changes.” Read Now
