Messy Church is for all ages of children, particularly up to about age 10… and for all the family. So children, bring your parents, grandparents or carers and we will enjoy a range of activities, have tea and a short worship time singing action songs. This is church and it is fun! We are holding Messy Church on Saturday afternoons so that Mum and Dad, if working in the week, can come too. All are welcome!
Thanks to all who supported the Messy Art event to take place alongside our art exhibition. We had a lot of fun splashing paint around and making junk models.
Our next event will be on Saturday October 28th with the theme Wet and Wild!… Jesus calms the storm. There will be a range of craft activities as well as games, water play and a quiet corner.
A short interactive worship with songs and a story will be held in the church, followed by a meal, family style in the church hall. All are welcome, the activities tend to be geared to the younger children, but we always have a table for older children with more challenging activities for the 7+ age group. Many of the parents and grandparents like the chance to get involved too, there is no age barrier!
Please note. We are not meeting on November 11th. We are now holding our Messy Church events monthly, except August, on the 4th Saturday of the month, 15:30 to 17:30. So please put dates in your diary ahead so you won’t miss one!
The exceptions this coming year will be
- Messy Crib Service (with games and food) on Christmas Eve, Sunday 24th December at 15:30
- Messy goes to the Farm : A visit to a farm on Sunday, March 25th 2018 (Time to be confirmed)
You are also very welcome at our regular Sunday services, where children are welcome in the service but there is also provision for children in classes and a crèche.
