On 24th November, we sneaked in a slightly early Advent theme, sang Christmas songs, acted out a short play, decorated candle-holders and made Christmas cards.
It is thrilling to see new families coming along.
We enjoy continued support from many parishioners who volunteer to come and help on the day; they make the families feel welcome, and it is lovely to see the inter-generational sharing of wisdom and fun.
Messy Church will continue in 2014, most likely mid-February [update: 9 February, 4.30pm]. Follow this blog or check out our parish Facebook page.
(Messy Church takes place about every second month at 4.30pm on a Sunday, in our parish hall. For more details, click here.)
