Messy Church is a monthly time of getting messy, and making crafts while learning and exploring more about Jesus and God’s love for us. We have a different theme each time, we sing action songs, hear God’s word from the Bible and pray together. And our popular puppets always make an appearance to sing a song!
Messy Church: February 20
This month we focused on The Good Samaritan. The love that the Samaritan had for the beaten man, and the love that God has for us. Some willing volunteers made brilliant actors at the front, and we all saw just how important it is to be kind. Looking after those in need and taking the time to be a friend to others. We sang the fabulous Dougie Doug song ‘I love you’ which the Tuesday club had been practising, so any BGs came to help with the actions. It is a wonderful, prayerful song. Teaching that we should sing Gods praises forever.
Then it was time for some craft fun! We decorated our cakes and had them for pudding at the hall, made valentine cards, crafted hearts with our names on and added them onto our fabulous wooden cross at the front. Made beautiful heart flowers within a secret message and a ladybird or buzzy bee friend! We had a messy tray with thousands of foil hearts to play with, and there were lots of heart balloons to play with too so everybody was kept busy!
The messy grace and tea time prayers were said, the puppets performed and then we were all ready for dinner! Off to the hall for a yummy Shepard’s pie and our cupcakes. How awesome to have a home cooked , tasty, healthy meal after all our busyness. Everyone joined in … one big Messy Church Family.
Thank you to all who make Messy Church Possible.

As a church we are continuing to follow guidance from both Public Health England and the Church of England. Detailed and up to date information can be found at:
Naturally as part of the community here in Pakefield we want to keep the most vulnerable people safe.
We have had to make some difficult decisions regarding our events, activities and groups, either because they involve catering (which has been suspended by the Church of England) or because they involve the most vulnerable in our community (as either volunteers or as part of the group).
Therefore our services will not include refreshments:
Sunday morning 10.30am
Thursday Gathering Lent/Worship
Some activities are suspended or postponed :
Monday: Hildersley Holy Communion Service
Tuesday Children’s clubs
Wednesday Morning Coffee and Teddy Edward Club
Friday Lent café
Murder Mystery Evening (tickets purchased will be valid for the new date later in the year)
Our hall is used for lots of community groups and some of those groups have decided to suspend meeting, these include (at time of writing)
Tuesday Lunch Club
Wednesday and Friday Bowls Club
If you attend a weekly activity please contact the organiser if you are concerned
