Ahh! Now that's scary!
Are we allowed to say that?
After all, isn't Halloween often a time when many Christians batten down the hatches or "hunker in the bunker" of their church building?  Definitely not at Kidz Klub Bradford!

The reflex response of so many Christians often seems to be, "how can we invite people to us"?  At Kidz Klub our reflex response is always, "how can we go to where people are"?  So it's no surprise that this Halloween you'll find Kidz Klub & our partners out where the action is once again - out on the streets.

There's no denying it, children love the opportunity to dress up and go knocking on peoples doors. So that's exactly what we'll be doing. But instead of "Trick or Treating", we'll be "Blessing and Treating". Instead of promoting horror & fear we'll be spreading joy & laughter. Instead of begging for treats we'll be sharing our sweets.  Instead of threatening a trick we'll be declaring a blessing:  

"The Lord bless you & keep you.
The Lord make His face shine upon you.
The Lord grant you His favour,
And give you His peace".

So don't "hunker in your bunker" this year! Why don't you & your family put on a silly costume and get out to "Bless & Treat" your neighbours?  You won't regret it.  We're confident that, as in previous years, everyone who takes part will discover that laughter is more powerful than screams; giving more rewarding than taking

Join us turning Halloween on it's head.  Let's make every Halloween a happy Halloween.
