Smelly Yellow Welly Club

Smelly Yellow Welly Club is an Easter Club for primary school aged children. Approx 140 children each day attend for 3 mornings over Easter. They hear bible stories, play games and make crafts to take home and decorate the church. Our team has in the region of 50 Adult Helpers, 25 young adult Team Leaders and 40 Teenage Gophers. It is fantastic fun for all involved with lots of laughter, mess and mayhem.

Don’t worry if you’re not an artist (if you are that’s great) as long as you can stick and glue we’ll have a job for you. If you prefer we have a Registration Team who greet the children and a Building Team who put everything together. It’s a great way to meet new people and once you’ve been we guarantee you’ll be back every year!!

If you haven’t been involved with children’s work at church you will need to complete a CRB check so please contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange for it to be completed.

If you have younger children we provide a crèche for helpers.
