Alton Webteam: February 2020
It was great to see lots of children and parents/grandparents at our February Messy Church.
We had lots of fun with a group game competing against each other to 'steal the bone' — amazing how competitive parents proved to be too!
The first part of the story of Joseph and his coat of many colours was illustrated with picture cartoons and then we went to explore the various craft activities based around the theme.
The big picture was painted with vibrant colours, clay models were formed in children's hands, multi coloured mini pizza's proved to be a very popular activity (eaten later) along with camels and coats and dreamcatchers all in all, a great time.
We look forward to part two of the Joseph story in our next Messy Church which will be held on the Saturday April 4th — you are very welcome to join us.
