I am writing this after our November Messy Church. It was great fun and the atmosphere felt lovely, relaxed and friendly with lots of little ones and older folk enjoying themselves.
We find that most of the adults love to take part in the activities and they were really absorbed this month. There were cakes to ice, advent calendars and cards to make as well as a superb advent ring made out of various shade of green cloth, oasis and paper candles with flames to add each month. For the very young there are toys and playdough and this month a chance to bath a baby doll. This was followed by our celebration service where we talked about not leaving Jesus out of our Christmas preparations. Followed by fish finger sandwiches this made a perfect afternoon.
Some of our activities were to do with next month because we are having a Christmas tea.
As Christmas Eve is on a Sunday we have changed the Crib Service to Friday 22nd of December at 2.45. This is our Messy Church Friday so we are looking forward to welcoming extra folk to the Crib Service and hoping they will stay and join in our Messy Church Christmas tea. We look forward to seeing you there.
