Alton Webteam: April 2019
We had a great time at Messy Easter on the first Saturday in April 2019.
After refreshments and a group game we listened to a cartoon story describing the story of Easter.
There were lots of Easter crafts to enjoy such as painting giant Easter Eggs, making Jammy Dodger tomb biscuits, Clay Gardens, bead & cross key rings, scrunchy paper crosses, pop up Jesus/tomb figures and Palm Sunday donkeys. Thanks to everyone who came and enjoyed a relaxing morning — thanks also for the sausage butties enjoyed at the end.
We look forward to the next Messy Church on Sat. May 4th 9.30-11am
