Messy Church News

We all had great fun at January’s Messy session. The theme was The Lost Sheep and there were lots of sheep linked activities. We used icing sugar to “glue” white mini meringues on biscuits and black icing to add legs, eyes and a mouth. They were surprisingly successful although a great many meringues were eaten in the process! We had a weaving table where folk could wind wool round to sticks to make a lovely Celtic-style cross. There was junk modelling which is always popular, using paint to make all sorts of pictures and some sheep inspired badges. These activities are in addition to our usual toddler toys and playdough.

Hannah led the Celebration time in church which involved looking for a sheep in some very mucky places-a bowl of flour, a bowl of baked beans and even a bowl of brown slime. The point was made quite clearly, that God wants to find us even when we feel that we have done things that are wrong and we are in a bad place.

We all sat down for a lovely tea of jacket potatoes, cheese and beans which everyone really enjoyed. Thanks to all the helpers who make these sessions run so smoothly.

Please come along and join us on the last Friday of the month from 1.30.

Next dates are February 28th, March 27th and April 24th.

See you there!
