Taken from the Introduction:

Pull up the anchor and get ready to sail as The Adventure Cruise launches into a programme of simple, fun-to-do activities. We'll be cruising the six 'C's, meeting people along the way who have had a life-changing encounter with Jesus. First of all there is the 'C' of Choice, then Courage, Call, Change, Commitment and Challenge. Just like the people we meet in the Bible stories about Jesus, we have choices to make, many of which will involve a great deal of courage. As Christians, we believe that God calls us to meet with Jesus and allow him to change our lives. God is committed to us and, when we choose to follow him, we too must be committed - to God and to one another. Often our choice challenges us to make a change which is well worth making, so don't miss out: step aboard as we sail away on The Adventure Cruise!

The Adventure Cruise contains all the essential ingredients for a successful, easy-to-run midweek or holiday club programme, including:

•     Songs: Songs that we learn as children stay with us right through our lives. They are a wonderful way of planting biblical truths in a fun way. Children love helping with actions for songs, so why not ask for volunteers to join those who are leading the actions, to demonstrate them for the rest of the children.
•     Opening talks: A short talk to introduce the theme.
•     Theme illustrations and challenges: A fun way of getting children involved in the upfront times, plus a creative way to illustrate the theme.
•     The Watt family serial drama: The Watt family find themselves battling against pirates on a modern cruise liner. Yes, pirates still exist - but they are not exciting heroes, just a bunch of crooks. The Watt family save the day on the adventure cruise of a lifetime. The daily instalments can be performed by a drama group, listened to on CD (visit www. or read as an adventure story. The Watt family serial drama helps set the scene and leaves the children on a cliff hanger each time, ensuring that they are keen to return to hear the next episode.
•      Crafts: A range of simple crafts ideas that fit with the theme of the programme.
•      Games: Team games for the children to enjoy. Also good for spending excess energy.
•      Puppet sketches: A fun way to introduce and reinforce the theme for the day.
•      Quick quiz questions: An ideal way to recap and reinforce in a fun way what the children have learnt. Also a way of earning points for the teams or tokens to spend.
•      Bible story narrations: Many children attending a holiday or midweek club know few stories from the Bible, so this is a wonderful opportunity to teach them. There are profound lessons to be learned from the amazing stories, so please never feel that we have outgrown them.
•      Prayers: A quiet way to explore the theme.
•      Time fillers: Ideas for expanding the programme as required.
•      Templates: Simple ideas for creating the publicity and administration items for your club.
•      Badges, invitation cards, registration form and presentation poster.

Photocopy permission is given on all scripts and music notation for the theme songs and memory verses, as well as the templates for the crafts, publicity, and administration forms.
