I received a number of messages from former members of Seal Church to whom we had sent cards made in "Messy Church" (I hope that the recipients will eventually get the copious amounts of glitter involved out of their carpets!)
Patricia Arding said:
I was really touched and delighted to receive a Christmas card from the members of Messy Church. Please will you pass on my warm thanks to them and especially to the gifted artist who created the card, and wish them all a happy Christmas from me.
Angela and Derek Lucas sent greetings too:
We were so happy to have received your "messy" card which is quite delightful. We miss you all so much and our long association with Seal Church. We shall never forget how much it all meant to us.
And Roger and Pat Savage wrote from Thailand:

It was great to see you all again in the Summer.
