Here are the activities we uploaded for Messy Church at Home on January 16th......
Saturday 16th January is Messy Church at Home Day!
Happy New Year! We’re praying that this year will be less stressful than last, and that we will soon all be able to get together for Messy Church again.
In the meantime, this month we are considering what God’s wonderful creation can show us about waiting until the right time. We’re thinking about seeds lying dormant, about hibernating, and about things which are hidden getting ready to grow when the days get longer and the Spring comes. And we’ll be hearing the story about how Mary and Joseph kept Jesus safe until the right time came for them to go home to Nazareth.
Here's what you will need - resources list.
And this is what we're making this time......
A Winter bouquet or Winter Ring
Asleep or awake?
