Messy Church: Saturday 23rd April.

A memorable restart to Messy Church thanks to Rev Robin Mann’s sandcastle versus rock-built house demonstration in a sandpit outside the Church Centre! We sensed our loving Father God’s hand upon us with fine weather for this and with enough willing helpers available to welcome the 20 children from 10 local families.

The following video clips show the sandcastle versus rock demonstration.

Three craft activities included decoration of wonderful house-shaped cookies provided by Enid Clark, individualised sandcastle flags for future use, and pictures of the children’s houses to be fixed to the ROCK on our wall frieze in the Church Centre.

Then 3 songs: Remember “The wise man built his house upon the rock”? -we sang with actions and with enthusiasm, old favourite “Our God is a Great Big God” and “My lighthouse”. Then a short drama with the 2 house-builders building their houses in alternative ways, a prayer, and drinks and snacks to finish. We thank God for the positive restart to Messy Church.

Please do PRAY for enough ongoing willing helpers to welcome the children and their parents, and most of all, please pray that a small seed of God’s Word will be sown and grow in the hearts of the children and families who come, and that the younger families will be able to come to the future sessions.
