Messy Church Sept 2019
The theme of Septembers Messy Church was 'Amazing Creation'.
It was great to welcome back children and families as well as enjoy the company of those new to Messy Church.
After refreshments and table games we then all joined in a fast and furious game of 'Pass the Bean Bag' with children (and adults) seen to be running around the chairs desperately trying to get back to their place before time ran out.
The story, told with picture cartoons, focused on God's amazing creation and the accompanying thought that behind all this beauty their must be a creator!
Many different crafts were enjoyed on the theme of creation with Whale biscuits, clay modelling, painting, fish sunglasses and lots more.
After enjoying a 'Hot Dog' it was time to clear up and look forward to the next Messy Church when there will be a harvest theme.
The next Messy Church is on Sat. Oct 5th 9.30-11am
