With services suspended at the moment we are not meeting for Messy Church
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: April 2021
Spring has definitely sprung! Nature is awakening everywhere we look. Today was the first day the Primary school children were allowed to have a coat free lunchtime. It felt like a freshness had entered the air that brings promise with it. That promise for us is Easter. In the next couple of weeks, we will have all of the emotions as we walk through Holy week. Normally the CYM groups are excited to plan for Easter, Messy Church would have an Easter special, and the church would be full of flowers. This year, we will have other ways to reflect on Jesus’ week in Jerusalem. However, we divide our time, the message of Easter remains. Christ died for us and we must look forwards. God is so much bigger than lockdown. The children at the schools keep asking me when their clubs will be back. They have this expectation that normality will soon return … and therefore so do I. Planning for the next term is well underway, and whatever we are able to do, we shall. Holiday club, Messy Church, Toddlers, Teddy Edwards, and Tuesday clubs all have provisional dates to open their doors. If you would like to know more about any of the groups, please contact me. For now, pop these dates in your diaries:
Messy Church returns 20th May.
Holiday club – Week of July 26th July
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everybody who kindly donated eggs for the Sunday Clubs Easter egg hunt, and Muddy church. We were so grateful and so were the children who received them!!
Have a lovely April! God Bless.
