This is a mix of activities and children’s worship aimed at families with young children.
It takes place from 4-6pm on the second Sunday of each month.
It is fun, creative and there’s always food to follow a very short, child-friendly service in Church.
The first hour involves a range of craft activities and games to get involved in, which link in with a different Bible theme or story each month.
Our themes have varied from Messy Gardens, the story of The Good Samaritan, Joseph and his coat of many colours, a Messy Olympics and we’ve even had a Messy Baptism and Thanksgiving!
At 5pm we have a short service in Church, based on the afternoon’s theme, usually with a story and a couple of songs and then everyone has a ‘Bring and Share’ tea together in the Main Hall, finishing around 6pm.
Next: October 13th @ 4.00pm
‘Safe and Sound – the Lost Sheep’
This month we will be exploring the parable of the shepherd and his lost sheep, found in Matthew Ch 18 vs 12–14 and Luke Ch 15 vs 3–7.
It is about a shepherd who leaves his flock of ninety-nine sheep in order to find the one which is lost.
We’ll be thinking about how God keeps us safe in his arms – and there will be lots of fun crafts and activities such as decorating shepherd biscuits, a Duplo maze challenge, crafting woolly sheep and more!
