September’s Messy Church was held at School for the first time and was a huge success! Youth Minister, Matt, led a Nerf Challenge which encouraged the children to work in families to protect a team member.
Hearing Dog, Ike, joined us and his owner demonstrated how important he is to her.
Roy told the story of King Midas and we discussed the importance of family time. Jassica led the swelling congregation in song and prayer before we all enjoyed delicious refreshments provided the team at St. Michael’s.
Another lovely Sunday afternoon in West Felton…
Our Summer Messy Church session welcomed over 30 children and their families joining us at St. Michael’s Church.
Messy Church is a new kind of church which is for children and parents and aimed at all ages and all families. … It aims to reach families via a connection to chapel or church; to show who Jesus is to families through craft, fellowship and informal learning.
This month we celebrated the greatest Super Hero of all – Jesus. We cut and coloured our own superheroes – thinking about super powers we have and those we see in others such as hope, faith, friendship and trust. We made knotted crosses with Matt – our Youth Minister and designed superhero masks with Mrs. Thomas.
We finished our session with a treasure hunt around the church before sharing refreshments together.
