We had a great time at Messy Church in March. We thought about how amazing God is. We looked at lots of examples from nature such as the caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly, seeds turning into various colourful flowers and even the jelly like frog spawn changing into frogs. Of course our activities followed this theme so children made caterpillar sock puppets, cress heads, and chicks. They also made flower jam sandwiches which they ate for their pudding at tea time. Making seed bombs that can be thrown into the garden to plant a bright colourful corner was also a popular activity.
For our Celebration time we listened to an animatèd version of The Hungry Caterpillar and made the link with the Easter story.
Our next Messy sessions are on Friday April 26th and May 31st. We look forward to seeing you there, from 1.30.
Hope to see you there.
