Easter 2023

Kids Team

Children enjoy lots of activities during a Spring Harvest break, including arts and crafts, Bible stories, worship and drama, all of which relate to the theme for the event. Working in small groups under the programme leader, you will learn the latest kids songs and actions, as well as loads of ideas to take back to your own church. You’ll get to interact with the children, pray with them and you may even help a child give their life to Jesus.
​​​​​

Use your experience of working with children and your passion for Jesus to help make an eternal impact on young lives through the programme at Spring Harvest. You will need to be a committed Christian, with age-appropriate experience of working with children in your local church.
