Messy Church

Today (13/5/18) we had the story of the Big Party based on Luke 14:12 to 24 and with the Royal Wedding being next weekend we linked our food and craft activities to that.

Our activities for Messy Church today (26th Nov. 2017) were based on Light.
Jesus, the light of the world being our guide and the Wise Men being guided by the light of the star to Bethlehem.
We made “Stained Glass” biscuits which let the light shine through
Lighthouses that guide sailors where to go and where not to go
A night-time sea scene with a ‘special star’ to go behind our big lighthouse.
We had some sparklers and also made some pretend edible sparklers with bread sticks , chocolate and coloured cake decorations
Our story was of the Wise Men and the star

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.

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.
