A bumper Messy Church for Good Friday.

 I can never predict how many people will turn up for Messy Church on Good Friday, but this year's was the biggest ever, and everyone had fun. I never quite know what's going to happen either, and this year we had a lovely surprise in the shape of two tiny newly hatched chicks, brought by Babs Bartholomew. They didn't seem to mind being passed around a lot of children! No photos of the chicks, I'm afraid, but plenty of photos of the other things we did below - thanks to Stephen Bloxham for these.
We made "Holy Grails" to remind us of the cup of wine Jesus shared with his friends.

We were busy, busy, busy - loads of people came!


Resurrection butterflies reminded us that God can change us and bring new life.



Crosses made of milk bottle tops (and lots of glitter!)



Colourful paper flowers to decorate the church (and to take home).
Making the twig cross.
We tied purple ribbons to our twig cross to symbolise our prayers of sorrow or concern, and gold ribbons for our thanksgivings.





Worship
