Messy Church December 2019
It was great to welcome children and families to Messy Church.
With Christmas quickly approaching a fast moving group game was followed by an action packed song 'Hush! There's a baby'. The first part of the Christmas story was told with Mary being visited by an angel and then along with Joseph making their way to Bethlehem.
There were lots of crafts to choose from such as decorating Christmas tree biscuits, making angels, donkeys and nativity scene crackers. A collage of Bethlehem was created by children and parents alike and everyone was found to be really engrossed by the time it came to eat sausage Butties !
We look forward to our Messy Church Christingle on Christmas Eve at 4pm when we will sing some carols, hear the Christmas story and make our own Christingle with an orange, candle and lots of sweets & fruits. Singing the last carol in candlelight will capture the festive atmosphere.
The next Messy Church is on Sat. Jan 4th at 9.30-11am
