Messy Church is a way of being in church for families. The aim is for the children and parents to have fun whilst learning something about the Christian faith.
Messy Church involves creativity, hospitality and celebration. At our Messy Church sessions we have a theme and there are numerous craft activities set out around the church for the children to do which are linked to that theme. The session ends in a short act of worship, which is very simple and appropriate for the children and is again linked to the theme of the session.
We am now producing weekly Mini Messy Church videos for Youtube and we will place the link for each week below.
Each week we will also be adding a template here for Children to colour in. We'd love to see your completed pictures! Please email images or JPEG documents of your picture to Fleur Email who will put them on our Website for all to see. So get colouring!!
MESSY CHURCH - WEEK SIX
For the final Messy Church this week, we looked at the colours indigo and violet making a night sky in a bottle using glitter and stars, a panda climbing bamboo to eat leaves and a violet 'love you' card using cut out hands!
MESSY CHURCH - WEEK FIVE
This week was the colour blue and we made a boat to tell the story of Jesus getting the fishermen to throw the nets over the other side of the boat, a rock pool out of an egg box to store treasured shells and an expanding crocodile.
MESSY CHUCH - WEEK FOUR
This week's Messy Church is based on the colour green and God's creation. Psalm 23 - The Lord is my Shepherd is the inspiration for 'my cup overflows', there is a green frog to make and a weather tube,
MESSY CHURCH - WEEK THREE
This week Geraldine looks at the colour yellow, with footprints in the sand painting, jars filled with coloured sand and a lion face mask to make.
MESSY CHURCH -WEEK TWO
Join Geraldine as she makes Pizza, paints with a cork and makes a Giraffe out of an Egg Carton.
