Messy Church

Messy Church

Messy Church is aimed at Primary School Children - especially 5-9s but others are welcome.
Older children may like to help.  Younger children with parents may join in as they are able.

     We meet after school during term times at St Matthew's on the second Wednesday of the month from 3.30/3.45 until 5.30.

There are up to 20 children - we play games - eat and drink - we sing action songs - we do crafts and produce some amazing things to take home.  We have parties at the end of term and through all of these activities we learn a little about Jesus and we learn to pray.  At 5.00pm we all sit down together, parents, helpers, and children to eat a meal.  There is no charge but we do ask for donations on a plate on the kitchen counter.
