Our recent Messy Church theme was, ‘A Harvest Gathering’.
We met on Saturday 7th October and much fun was had with the messy crafts! We used vegetables to create beautiful painted works of art; seeds and lentils to make paper plate pictures; yummy fruit pizza’s were made from a variety of fruit, scarecrows with character were made from craft materials, colourful jewellery made from pasta and VERY messy bird feeders made from pine cones, lard and bird seed! The ‘Farm’ was also available and several little people thoroughly enjoyed playing with all the animals. Our worship was lively as we sang and heard about three gardens; an apple orchard, an olive garden and a vineyard , which helped us learn more about our creator God, who loves us unconditionally and sent us his son Jesus to show us just how much he really loves us. We finished off with a ‘picnic tea’ for the children and a variety of delicious cakes for everyone to enjoy.
