Junior Church and Messy Church

Our Messy Church activities are for people of ALL ages. Children under ‘Reception’ age must be accompanied by an adult.

Each session is normally based round a theme – in the past we have had:-
The Good Samaritan;
Jonah and The Whale;
Feeding the 5000;
Christmas;       Rainbows;
Peter The Fisherman           and others . . .

Linked to the theme we normally have some craft, a story, a prayer and some food such as making and eating biscuits / bread in shapes connected with the theme.

Our activities for Messy Church today (24th Sept. 2017) were based around the story of Naomi and Ruth.
Ruth gathered grain that was left in the fields after harvest – so we had a go at grinding some grain with a “quern stone” – which was very slow and also with an electric coffee grinder which was much faster and gave us enough flour to make a few bread rolls, making different types of wheat pictures, making a harvest loaf and we coloured in a verse from the bible.

Our Messy Church in January was “In The Beginning” and we had the story of the creation from The Lion Storyteller Bible. Craft and food was based around this theme.

Sunday 16th November, 2014
Today’s Messy Church was based around the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’. We used Lost Sheep resources to help us tell the story. This is a picture that we cut up for everyone to colour and then stick together. We made an edible road to represent the road in the story and played a character game with shoes.
