Holiday Club was created to be a connection point between the children of the Joe Slovo informal settlement, the children and staff of Refilwe. Most important of all, it was to be a connection point between God, the children of Joe Slovo and Refilwe whom He so dearly loves. We started Holiday Club to demonstrate God’s love to the children that join us over the school holidays. We have seen the trust grow between us and the children of the Joe Slovo community as well as an enthusiasm for God. We have seen strong relationships being built between the community and Refilwe and we have seen God continue to provide funding for Holiday Club out of His grace and the generosity of His people. It is such a blessing to see that over the school holidays God brings healing and transformation to so many of the lives of our kids who have been hurt by an environment of addiction and violence that they often come from.
Kids Club is on Saturday mornings from 8:30 to 13:00 with the average of 100 kids from the surrounding Lanseria communities. Here we enjoy the company of each other in the presence of Christ. It’s a time of free play, worship, Bible story, and small group time. Not to mention the nutritious meal at the end to make the weekend stomach grumbles a little less. It is a place to feel safe and loved by each person who attends. Kids Club is designed for discipleship and building of relationships.
