Recently, the Hard of Hearing Group were pleased to host the pilot meetings of this initiative, led by Debbie, our Anna Chaplain with her team of helpers. It is modelled on the All-Age Messy Church which was started at Cowplain, near Portsmouth, about ten years ago, but this is aimed particularly at reaching people in their later years.
Assisted by Karen Booker, Judy Nichols and Sarah Broadbent, each afternoon took a fresh look at two familiar Christian Festivals; Easter and Pentecost. With craft activities (some messier than others!), poems, songs and prayers, those present were able to give Debbie very positive feedback ready for her report to the International Messy Church Conference in Hertfordshire to be held in May.
'If people in Alton enjoy it we would like to extend it to men and women beyond the club, and who knows what it might lead to in terms of offering less formal ways of learning about and experiencing the Christian faith' said Debbie
