Alton Webteam: January 2019
Come along to our next Messy Church on Saturday April 6th 9:30am to 11am!
It was wonderful to welcome lots of children and parents to our first Messy Church of 2019!
Following refreshments and table games with Lego being particularly popular. We then all came together to have lots of fun with some parachute games with children running underneath or being 'sharks' beneath the waves!
The theme this month was based around the story of big bad King Herod and his annoying visitors — wise men from the east — searching for a new born King. Mary and Joseph then escaped to Egypt where maybe they saw pyramids and all things Egyptian, before returning home to Nazareth when the bad King was dead.
A great variety of crafts included painting, clay modelling, marshmallow pyramid making, Hama bead stars, wise men, donkey masks, camels, soldier helmets and lots more. A great way to spend a Saturday morning!
We would love to see you!
