Messy Church

messy church logoMessy Church is for ALL the family.

Messy Church meets once a month during term times for families who find it difficult to attend church on Sunday mornings.

Messy Church includes arts and crafts, celebration and food.

We start at 3.00 pm with a welcome from Janice and then the children have a variety of crafts to make. They can bring their favourite creation into Church at 4.00 pm for a short story and some songs to celebrate. Then it is back into the hall for high tea at 4.30 pm for the children and teas and coffees for the adults. Occasionally accompanied by Marva’s famous cakes! We finish at 5.00 pm with a good time had by all!

No return date for the time being.

Fun worship for under 5’s and their carers in church followed by refreshments.

We have great fun once a month singing dancing and making a noise in Praise!

This is a lively half hour with an interactive bible story, singing songs and dancing. This activity takes place in church so that the children get used to the building.

We meet on the 1st Wednesday of the month in term time between 9.15am and 10.30am.

Craft Mornings

crafty bits and bobsAt Christmas and Easter there is plenty to do at our ‘Krafts for Kids’ sessions christmas treeduring the school holidays.

From face painting to assembling your very own Easter Garden or Christmas table decoration there’s usually something for everyone. At half time there is a chill out time in order to listen to the Easter or Christmas story but then on with a load of new crafts. Children under 7 should be accompanied by an adult  but don’t let this put you off – the adults enjoy it as much as the children!
