SPARK in the Park started about 20 years ago when three churches from Welling got together after finding they shared the same vision of putting on a fun free event for children during the Summer holidays.

Over the years, people from other local churches have got on board and this year our volunteers were from at least 16 churches, including a lady who faithfully travels down from Watford each year to be part of the team and others who have now moved away from Welling, but return to participate.

The main organisation of the event is driven by St John's Welling and New Hope Church with Wellspring Pentecostal Church and Welling Evangelical Free Church also supporting on the Exec team. Other local churches represented by SPARK volunteers include Bexley Christian Life Centre, St Peter's, Bexleyheath, Albany Park Baptist Church, Avery Hill Christian Fellowship, Bishop Ridley Church, Charlton & Blackheath Christian Fellowship - CBCF, New Community Church, The Vine Christian Community Church, Welling Methodist Church, St Michael's Abbey Wood and St Stephen's Welling.

As most of you know, everything (apart from refreshments) at SPARK is free and this is made possible through donations from the local churches and individuals and we are also grateful for a small grant from East Wickham and Welling War Memorial Trust to cover the cost of the park hire.

We love putting on SPARK for the local community and look forward to seeing you again this year!
