Space Academy by Dr. Steve Hutchinson, Helen Franklin


Space Academy by Dr. Steve Hutchinson, Helen Franklin

Space Academy is a seven-day children's holiday club (an opening Sunday service, five club sessions and a closing Sunday service). It has a space theme and explores the early chapters of Daniel. It includes how Daniel and his friends stood up for their faith in a foreign land, despite the opposition and how God was faithful to them. Children at the club will encounter a God who is wise, powerful, mighty and above all others. But also a God who is interested in helping his people. This resource book is packed with creative ideas on how to explore these remarkable stories - ideas you can change and adapt to suit your club and context. There are also ideas for construction (craft), games, drama, creative prayer and worship. Space Academy has a mixture of up-front presentation and small-group activities, allowing children and leaders to build meaningful relationships with each other and with God. The holiday club programme is written for the 5 to 11 age group. There are ideas on the Space Academy website at for extending the age group to include under-5s and/or 11 to 14s. It is for you to decide the best age group for your club, and select the activities to fit.
