MESSY CHURCH

posted 1 Oct 2017, 07:37 by Richard Jones

Come and join the fun. 

St. Mary’s school, Mellor 

Sunday October 22nd 4pm. 

Everyone welcome For

Stories        Songs    Games

Crafts and more Crafts 

 

As this goes to press the Junior team are learning about how to start a Messy Church. We hope that it will give the families who can’t get there on Sunday mornings a chance to do some form of church, and that it will be good way to bring people of all ages together. 

It begins with a theme/bible story and then crafts and a meal. All children must be accompanied by an adult.  

We need lots of help to make this a success, we just don’t know what will happen! 

If you can help in any way, crafts, welcoming, washing up, cooking, tidying or just being here we will be so grateful. Please let Debbie know. This could be the start of a great adventure together!
