Each year we offer a variety Christmas services and events to meet different needs and aims. We hope to see you at one, some, or all of them!
Messy Church noticeboard
for November 2015
Next Messy Church is on Sunday 29th November, at 4.15pm, in the hall next to Holy Innocents church, Church Street, Amberley. ALL WELCOME!
Our theme in November: Advent: Getting Ready for Christmas
We will be making candles.
We will also hear stories from the Bible and meet the fabulous Cecil the Sheep (again) and his friends as they race to Bethlehem to meet the new king that the angel has told them about.
Feel free to arrive at the hall any time between 4.15 and 4.30pm.
We will begin with music and stories at about 4.30pm, followed by craft time.
Messy Church will finish in the usual way, with a relaxed shared Supper.
Please bring a small plate of finger-food to share if you can.
