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!
Messy Church July Summer Special
This months Messy Church was our summer special! We met at the Church Hall and had fun and games on the field. The children enjoyed parachute games and the adults could sit in the sun with a cup of tea. It was all about colour and play this month, with a soft area for the little ones and colourful crafts galore.
The crafts each had their own bible quote and the team chatted to the children as they made some awesome creations! Multi coloured sand art made some beautiful swirly pictures, a giant seaside picture using paints, yummy fruit kebabs for the picnic! And beach safety cards. These were especially important as they had the beach flags and their meanings. Beautiful cards were made with buckets and spades, beach balls, fish and so many of Gods beautiful seaside creations. The message of safety for the summer holidays could not be more important, and so we added this “ the Lord will protect you and keep you safe from all dangers, The Lord will protect you now and always wherever you go.” Psalm 121:7-8 We explained that God is with us always and will look after us … but it is so Important to be careful and keep yourself safe.
Then we all enjoyed a yummy picnic on the grass and ate our fruit kebabs. It was so wonderful to see so many families join us. We hope to see you all again in September and pray that you all have an amazing summer filled with fun and laughter.
Stay Safe. God Bless
