Putting the mess into Messy Church

Here are some photos of yesterday's Messy Church. We were preparing for Pentecost, which is next Sunday. We thought about wind and fire - things which change what they touch, just as the Holy Spirit changes us. So we made flames (not real ones!) which you will see in church next week, and windchimes. We made extremely messy pictures by blowing splodges of paint around with straws. And we made junk model and paper boats, which we sailed across our own indoor ocean created in a growbag tray.

Everyone played very hard, as you can see from these photos... and much mess was created.
Thank you to helpers, Linda, Nicky and Lise for managing the mess...

The next Messy Church is on Oct 16th, but between then and now there are other activities on offer - the Strawberry Tea on Sunday June 26th will include activities for children, (£5 adults, £2,50 children, in aid of church funds) and there will be games on Seal Rec (and bring your own picnic) on Aug 28th from 4 -5.30.
