We hope you can join us!
At our February Messy Church we thought about how Jesus is with us all day, every day – when we get up, when we go to school/work, when we chill out, and when we’re asleep. However much sleep we get – (or not!)
So we did things to do with clocks, things to do with mealtimes, things to do with building, and things to do with colouring and sticking. Plus our older Big Builders and Lego Lovers had their own special challenges!
Up and coming Messy Church dates
Saturday 16th March
Saturday 20th April

Get them on the family calendar, and we look forward to seeing you.
What on earth is Messy Church???
Most people think of 'church' as people sitting quietly in rows, saying quiet prayers and listening to someone talking for quite a long time.
And church services can be like that...
but they don't have to be.
People can come together to enjoy being with God in all sorts of ways.
The important things are that
we are together
we are listening to God
we are learning more about God
whoever we are, and whether or not we like sitting quietly in rows and all that.
gives familes of all ages, shapes and compositions the chance to
enjoy crafts and other activities
take part in some simple worship
and to have breakfast together.
It's great for those of us who think with our hands
and don't much like sitting still.
It meets once a month on Saturday mornings*
10 - 11:30am
in St James' Church
(but not in the pews!)
*the third Saturday of each month.
Don't worry - we'll remind you when it is via email if you wish.
And all our updates are posted on Facebook, Twitter and this page.
