Why not come and join us at Messy
Church!! - You will be made
Messy Church is a national initiative which comes under the banner of Fresh Expressions of Church. It is used successfully by churches of all denominations to provide an alternative to families who may be unable to ,or who do not wish to, attend church services on a Sunday.
Here at Moulsham we tend to hold a Messy Church every 6-8 weeks and they take place in our church hall on a Wednesday afternoon. We begin at 3.30pm and end at 5.00pm. As the children arrive they help themselves from a buffet of food and drink and there is plenty of tea or coffee for the adults (and food too if they so wish!). We then have a short time in the church where the children listen to a Bible story (or watch one on our large screen) and sing a song or two. Then we have a session of crafts, including cookery and sometimes games, for 3/4 of an hour. All of the crafts are themed around the Bible story they have just heard. Adults are encouraged to join in with their children &/or to chat to other parents and the helpers. Afterwards we all meet together in the church for a song and prayer before going home.
All are welcome. At present the children’s ages range from 2-15 and the adults may be mums, dads, grandmothers (we’ve had no grandfathers yet!), aunts or friends.
Please watch this space for an invitation to our next Messy Church.
