Messy Church in Tansley

Today saw our first ever Messy Church. What FUN!

 
Not sure what, or who, to expect for our first ever Messy Church, we were absolutely delighted to welcome 24 children and their parents and carers this afternoon.
 
With a focus on Harvest and Creation, we were making miniature gardens, vegetable animals and people, vegetable and fruit prints, noise and outdoor art.
 
After an hour – which flew by in what seemed like ten minutes – the children went into church for a short (bible) story and some singing…. while the helpers did a quick room makeover and created a harvest laden dining room ready for our meal. Tonight we had wraps with all kinds of delicious fillings, followed by fresh fruit and yoghurts.
 
I could tell you loads more about what we did and the fun we had…. but they say a picture speaks a thousand words…. so here they are. The photos
 
Messy Church Harvest
A massive thank you to all of the children, their parents and carers for making Messy Church such a great success.
 
An equally massive thank you to all the organisers and helpers, for the same reason.
 
Finally a reminder that we are so looking forward to doing it all again with you on Wednesday 4th December, when the theme will be nativity based.
 
God Bless!
