Messy Church

Home » News » Messy Church

During August we held our first Messy Church and were thrilled to welcome around 30 children with their parents and careers, some from our church, some from other churches and some from none.

The event began with table top games and a clue trail which were followed by story time. The theme for Messy Church was seaside and the stories were all about the things Jesus did on and by the sea, including calling his disciples and calming a storm.

After the stories the children had a choice of craft activities run by people from the Methodist and the other GAP churches. Crafts included making boats, contributing to a collage of fish and seaweed Ina sponge printed sea, clay moulding and much more.

The afternoon was rounded off with a feast of hot dogs, cake and drinks. What a brilliant afternoon! Now we have to plan the next one!

A good meal at The Blue Bell completed a pleasant morning's exercise in beautiful...
