Here are the activities we uploaded for Messy Church at Home on March 20th......
Saturday 20th March is Messy Church at Home Day!
This month we have another episode in our Tales of the Unexpected - unlikely people who God chose to be his special friends.
And today we have two for the price of one - Mary and Martha, ordinary sisters who were very different from each other, but both very dear to Jesus. There are several stories in the Bible about them, but today we're thinking about the one where Jesus popped in for dinner. Everything we're making will help us to tell the story of how Martha got all in a flap about tidying up and getting the food ready, whilst Mary sat and listened to what Jesus had to say....
The resources list is here....
and here's what we're making....
Before you begin: Find all the resources you need.
10am*: Gather together everyone who is taking part, and say "Welcome to Messy Church" to each other.
10 - 11am: Do your making and activities.
from 11am: Make your drinks and toast and log in to Zoom tea-and-toast to share what you have made, and join in with the celebration and songs together.
If you're not joining us on Zoom, grab your toast and a drink and watch the Celebration on YouTube here, and then join in with the songs:
(Sorry about the adverts!)
11:30am: Say "Thank you for coming to Messy Church" and help to tidy up
(*Of course, you can do all, or some, of Messy Church at whatever time suits you. But sadly that probably mean you won't be able to join in Zoom tea-and-toast 😟)
