Enjoyed Holiday Club?

Did your child enjoy attending Holiday Club?

Are you now wondering what's next? We are hoping to run another Holiday Club next year, but between now and then there are a number of activities and events that might be of interest.

'Hands Free'

The band that played for Holiday Club play every month on a Sunday afternoon at St Matthew's Church, and include some of the songs that we sang at Holiday Club. 'Hands Free' is every second Sunday of the month, starts at 4.30pm with drinks and snacks, is informal, interactive and family-friendly, and we use projection technology throughout. Do come along.

Special events

Around the last week in October we have a 'Light Party' which includes crafts, games, singing and food. All the family are welcome. We also have an activity morning planned for the the last Saturday in November. This 'Advent Special' helps us to help to gear up for Christmas and give parents some much-appreciated child-free time! More information on both of these proposed events to follow - please check the website and the Ridgeway Broadsheet.

All Age Worship

Every first Sunday of the month at 9.30am in Chilton and 11.00am in Harwell we have 'All Age Worship', a family service lasting 40 minutes. (On other Sundays children are equally welcome and we also offer a programme for children and young people that runs alongside the service: click here for more details).


Family-friendly activities usually happen on Good Friday morning in Harwell and Easter Sunday afternoon in Chilton. More information available here. For information about Easter services click here.


'Y-Club' is a free club for children from F1 to year 6 at which the children learn about God through Bible stories, prayer, craft activities and have lots of fun doing so! It meets every Thursday after school at Chilton School. 

Holiday Club

We are hoping to run Holiday Club again next summer but have not yet confirmed dates. Information about the Club will be made available on posters, fliers and on the website in the summer and the dates posted on the website as soon as they are set.

Harwell Young Singers

HYS is for boys and girls aged 7-18 who love to sing. It meets every Thursday at 6.15pm at St Matthew's Church. More information available here.

1st Harwell Scouts

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers meet on various evenings in St Matthew's Church Hall as well as going on camps, night hikes, sailing, moutain biking, and loads more. 1st Harwell Scouts is sponsored by St Matthew's and further information about the Group can be found here.
