Who is behind Spark in the Park?

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 last year our volunteers were from at least 16 churches, including some 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 Bexley Christian Life Center,Welling Evangelical Free Church and Wellspring Pentecostal Chuch also making up the Exec team.

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 grant from East Wickham and Welling War Memorial Trust to go towards the cost of the park hire.

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