Messy Church

Messy Church is held once in each of the school holidays, ie six times a year.  We meet in the main hall at the church on a Thursday morning from 10am until 12.30.  In that time we have about 1¼ hours of activities and crafts on the topic of the day, followed by a celebration time in which we talk about the topic, sing a few songs and thank God for our time together.  We then share in lunch.  All family members are very welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or carer.   There is no charge.

Last time, our theme was "I am the Good Shepherd". We made a collage of sheep with a shepherd, we decorated fairy cakes with marshmallows and black icing faces (which we then ate at lunchtime), we made bookmarks and played  blowing soft balls into a pen, used playdough to make sheep, and very effective sheep masks.


For our celebration time we sang new words to Frere Jacques, and heard the Bible story of the Good Shepherd. We enjoyed sharing lunch of soup and sandwiches, crisps and tomatoes, followed by grapes, bananas and the sheep cakes.


The next Messy Church at Christchurch will be held from 10am on Thursday, July 25th in the church hall on the  Springfield Road/Havelock Road corner.  We invite all members of the family and look forward to seeing you there, for activities, a celebration and lunch. As usual, there is no charge.  Please contact Jill 01424 214451 for more details.
