Messy Church

On Sunday 27th November we held our first such event in the hall of the Venerable Bede Church in Giggetty Lane.  It was a rousing success attracting more that forty children and parents, all of whom had a really fun time.  There were four different activities for all the family to share in together, namely – making an Advent wreath, Christmas tree, Advent calendar, Rocky Road Cakes and planting some bulbs.  After that Sarah ran a workshop involving a response story and singing that was held in the church itself.  This was followed by a meal of hot dogs, pizza, chips and rocky road cakes that had been made earlier.  The comments on Facebook after the event, were extremely encouraging.  Messy Church is aimed at families with children aged three to eleven, although younger children accompanied by an adult (s) are very welcome.  No charge is made for attending the event.
