What are Grow Teams?
Grow Teams are weeklong events. They are education programmes run for your church or organisation. They run from a Monday until a Friday, mainly from 10:00am until 3:00pm or 08:30 to 17:30, and cover an age range from six years old up to twelve years old. The team is residential and arrives the Saturday afternoon before the first day and leaves the following Friday evening!!!
There are a variety of Grow Teams - Bible holiday clubs, summer schemes, environmental and cultural summer programmes. A typical day may consist of a teaching programme, crafts, games, music, multimedia and anything else that may come up! For volunteers there is a chance to work with small groups, big groups, different ages, on your own or as a team. These weeks are never an easy ride for volunteers, they are not a holiday. However, they are fun, developmental, exciting, challenging, tough, addictive. Team volunteers will always learn loads about themselves. If you're thinking of volunteering you're sure to make new friends and lasting friendships. This is an opportunity to serve the local church or community groups and therefore you will have, quite simply, an awesome time!!!
