Messy Jan Pic 1

It was great to welcome lots of children, parents and grandparents to the first Messy Church of 2020 on Jan. 4th.

After table games as people arrived we played two group games which burnt off plenty of energy. We then acted out the story of Mary & Joseph taking Jesus as a baby to the Temple to give thanks for his life. Old Simeon and Anna were so excited to see him! We then imagined what it was like for Jesus growing up as a boy with his brothers and sisters, learning woodwork and Hebrew as well as having fun! There were lots of great crafts on offer including painting, clay modelling, feathered birds, iced biscuits and lots more!
We would love to see you at our next Messy Church on Saturday Feb 1st 9.30-11am
