Messy Church takes place in St Michael’s church and the Parish Room. It happens on the first Thursday of the month, and is open to all children of all ages and abilities and their families in the community.
People start arriving at 3.30 pm for a 3.45 pm start. When people arrive for registration, drinks and biscuits are served and the children play, moving swiftly onto an array of arts and crafts at 3.45 pm. The crafts are all linked to a theme, and after 45 minutes the crafts stop and we go into the church for songs and a brief story on the theme which most weeks the children partake in. Then everyone is invited to join together for a hot shared meal.
While there is no cost for this session, we do ask for a small donation to cover costs.
