Messy Church noticeboard
for May 2017
Our next session of Messy Church is on Sunday 28th May, at 4.15pm. A good idea is to like our parish Facebook Page, where we post a reminder a week or so before. Please click on the above Facebook link, ‘Like’ the page and then you will receive the updates.
Messy Church is held in the hall next to Holy Innocents church, Church Street, Amberley from 4.15–6.00pm (including supper). ALL WELCOME! Messy Church is open to the whole community, not just regular church-goers or Anglicans. Adults and children, come and join us — and bring a friend or neighbour.
Feel free to arrive any time between 4.15 and 4.30pm.
We always begin with music and stories at about 4.30pm, followed by craft time, then we gather for final celebrations before sharing a relaxed Supper. Please bring a small plate of finger-food to share if you can. An optional gold-coin donation per family is appreciated, to help meet our expenses.
Not heard of Messy Church?
It’s relaxed, interactive church for adults and children. The activities are aimed at preschool and primary school aged children, but older children/youth are also very welcome and may take roles as Leaders
Children must be accompanied by an adult or teenaged caregiver, but there are plenty of volunteer helpers on hand, so caregivers don’t have to supervise their children throughout. There’s time to have a cuppa and to network.
We have fun with music, Bible stories, multi-media, making things, baking, games and/or drama.
We finish with a relaxed shared supper of finger food, and are usually all done by about 6pm. Each family brings a small plate of finger food to share. Some hot food and drinks are provided.
So remind me, when is it?
Sunday, 28th May, 4.15pm. The next session will also be notified via the Parish Facebook page Please arrive between 4.15 and 4.30pm if you can.
