Messy Church is a monthly time of getting messy, and making crafts while learning and exploring more about Jesus and God’s love for us. We have a different theme each time, we sing action songs, hear God’s word from the Bible and pray together. And our popular puppets always make an appearance to sing a song!
We celebrated Pentecost at Messy church in June. We sang Happy Birthday to the Church, because Pentecost marks the birth of the Christian church in the world. We heard the story of the first Pentecost when the Holy Spirit landed on the disciples as a mighty wind and tongues of fire. Then the disciples ran out into the streets telling everyone about Jesus, in lots of different languages. We had fun decorating cakes, lighting and blowing candles out as well as eating the cakes of course. We made streamers and windmills to represent the Holy Spirit and thought about all the different languages that people speak.
I am looking forward to Messy Church in July.
