Burnham-On-Sea church holds alternative Halloween party

Fun, games, jokes and songs will all on be offer at Burnham-On-Sea Baptist Church this Wednesday (October 31st) when a Light Party is held for primary school-aged children.

This is a positive alternative to Halloween, with no scary costumes or trick or treating.

Instead, the children will meet together to sing, play games, have some fun and enjoy some party food.

The event is being organised by the church’s children’s team and will follow a similar format to their annual children’s holiday clubs, which typically attract 70-90 children each year.

Children’s worker Linda Ayers told "Lots of people feel uncertain about Halloween, and don’t want their children to go trick or treating. But the kids love having a good time, so we plan to lay on a fantastic evening for them, but full of positive things, focussing on light instead of darkness."

Light Party is a growing movement worldwide, and many churches are now offering similar events.

There are still places available at the Light Party and entry is free. It runs from 4.30pm-6pm and doors open at 4.15pm. Contact the church office on 01278 794057 for more information.
