Messy Church

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.’ Proverbs 22:6

Term dates: 18th September, 16th October,  20th November and 18th December from 3.30pm to 5.30pm

The hall is buzzing with conversation.  Around a table adults and children burst into laughter as they wrestle with metallic tubing and googly eyes and their teenage helpers despair of ever creating the promised artefact.

A toddler slaps green paint on a huge sheet of card under the watchful eye of a Granny (not sure if they’re related or not – it doesn’t really matter).  A five-year-old watches wide-eyed as an enthusiastic leader shows her how to bang in a nail.  All the while there’s a delicious smell wafting out of the kitchen.  Don’t miss it!

  • Every 3rd Tuesday in the Church Hall – 3.30 to 5.30 pm
