Here are the activities we uploaded for Messy Church at Home on April 24th......

Saturday 24th April 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're thinking about someone who was really really unexpected! His name was Paul (no, not our Rev Paul!) and to begin with he hated the followers of Jesus so much that he had them put into prison. Until one day he had a very unexpected meeting with Jesus himself. 

All our makings today are to do with what happened next. The resources list is here....

 

   and here's what we're doing....

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 😟)
