Messy Church November 2019
With All Saints Day and Bonfire Night almost upon us the theme of November's Messy Church was based around light.
It was great to welcome many children and families to Messy Church.
After refreshments and table games we then all joined in parachute games.
Liz helped us think about different kinds of light and as Christians the description of Jesus as Light of the World.
Many different crafts were enjoyed on the theme of light with the making of lighthouses, wooden candle craft, paper crafts, clay modelling, big picture painting, bulb planting 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 Christmas theme.
The next Messy Church is on Sat. Dec 6th at 9.30-11am
