Messy Church

Messy Church

 

Messy Church is a new way to worship and learn more about the Christian faith, and is an opportunity for fun activity for the whole family - children to grandparents!   We begin with a variety of crafts for everyone to join in, which are all based around the theme of the day.   For the more energetic there are games to play.   After about 45 minutes, we all join together for a short time of worship through song and story.   Finally we finish with drinks and food, giving everyone a chance to chat and relax.   Join us and experience Messy Church at St Nicholas. Dates as advertised here, on public notice boards and on Facebook.                

'Angels and Lions' 20th Feb 2020: Half-term week

   

Age doesn't come into it...Messy Church is for all!

45 children and 75 adults enjoyed a morning making Daniel and the lions story cards, making angels and Mothering Sunday cards, learning a lot about angels from the quiz, playing games, singing songs, listening to the story and tucking into hot-dogs. It's always good to have the children participate in the worship time, and it's heartening to get such positive comments on Social Media afterwards. It makes all the hard prep work so worthwhile.

 

Next Messy Church at St. Nicholas is on Good Friday, 10th April at 10am.

27th October 2020: Messy Church in a Bag!

We weren't to be beaten by Covid 19 any longer, so with the help of our usual supporters, East of England Funeral Directors/H.H.Aldiss Funeral Directors, we prepared Activity Bags for children to collect and make use of the contents at home. The children were delighted with the contents of the bags, which included pre-pprepared craft activities, including a blackbird headband,colouring sheets and book with colouring pencils included, story cards and yummy treats. They were very pleased with the opportunity to meet their furry friend, Digger Rabbit once again, who remained socially distant and wore his mask, to keep everybody safe. Clare Cubitt and Evelyn Speed ensured that safety precautions were maintained throughout the morning.
