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....
