Messy Church

Messy Church rocks!  We had our first ever Messy Church experience on Sunday 10 June and what a great afternoon of fun and activity it was!  Our theme was 'Joseph' and we heard how, no matter what, God always looked looked out for him and had a plan for his life.  We had the chance to try out about 9 different craft activities from icing Joseph figures with coloured icing and other bits and bobs to making amazing Pharaoh head dresses. We even made binoculars to see what we could see when we looked out!  And , of course, we made our own version of his 'multi-coloured dreamcoat'!  For tea we had garlic bread, pizza and ice cream - YUM!!!!!  We had lots of helpers, parents and children  - (our oldest participant being over 90!)  - who all joined in with the singing, games and crafts.  We moved all the chairs in the kirk out of the way - with  thanks to many willing members of the congregation after the service - and were able to use both the church and the Centre for all our fun and games. As the photographs of the afternoon are sent to me we will update the page and either remind you of the fun or show you what you missed!  We plan to make Messy Church a regular feature of our church life and hope to attract both our existing Church families and families and friends from within the wider community.  We hope too,  to use it as an opportunity for us to work with other churches in the area.  Thanks should go to everyone who helped in ANY way to make this event a success.  WATCH THIS SPACE!!!!
