…………..Next meeting Thursday 14th September at 3.30pm
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!
Our Meeting in July
This month was an emotional Messy Church as it was Bob’s grand finale! What a fantastic time we had hearing all about how much God loves us, and all the animals too!
We had two special guests at the talk. Bob’s dog Poppy and the Mills newest edition puppy Holly. The children loved meeting the dogs, who were only too happy to be fussed.
The crafts included the making of God’s holy mountain, a place where all the animals live together in harmony. What a wonderful place. The children chose which animals they would like on the mountain then coloured them in and stuck them on. We also made mini aquariums… where fish and sharks could swim together! There was a puzzle to solve… putting the right pictures into the bible quote, and some fabulous finger puppets came out in force!
Everybody signed a card for Bob and we told him how much he will be missed, thanking him for all the Messy Churches in Pakefield over the years. We wish him all the best for his retirement.
As always a massive thank you to all the volunteers!
Looking forward to seeing you all when we return in September have a brilliant summer holiday.
God bless, Katey.

Having a Crafty time!
Children are always excited and look forward to seeing and hearing our puppets as they sing a song.
After this time in the church we then move to the nearby church hall for tea together. This is a simple hot meal for everyone – children, parents and carers.
Messy Church is on the second Thursday each month during school terms (except December). Children and parents come straight after school starting from 3:15pm. Younger, pre-school children also come! There is no need to book, It is a time for adults and children together. We look forward to seeing you soon…
