Messy Church

Messy Church is returning!

Join us on Saturday 21st May from 3.30 - 5pm in St Thomas' Church Hall, Blaby Road. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (e.g. mum, dad, grandparent, carer)

There will be craft, story and a free meal at the end too!

 

Prayers

Try to be quiet and still for at least one minute.

(You can do it! Ask someone to time you if you need to)

In your head tell God some of the things you've been thinking about.

Maybe something or someone:

*you're worried about. 

*you're excited about. 

*you know who needs help.

*God can help you to help with?

 

Finish by trying The Lord's Prayer with some actions: https://youtu.be/tOugEQpcc_k

Finish off with the Allelu song (complete with funky beat!) https://youtu.be/wTDd8BEPP7o

Maybe see if the grown ups at home have got something for tea?! (Don't forget the Grace song... 'de ne ne ne (*click click*)...')

You can send us some pictures of what you've been working on via the Facebook page: 'The Wigston Benefice' or to revchrisjohnson.wbs@gmail.com

 

Here's what we usually get up to:

Messy Church is a monthly session aimed at families who want to learn about God through activities such as crafts, games and singing. It's aimed mainly at babies and children under eleven years old, but older siblings/cousins/friends are welcome too. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (e.g. mum, dad, grandparent, carer)

Whilst the hall is being tidied up, we do go into church as well before heading back for dinner!

Each session is built around a different Bible story - previous sessions include Who is Jesus?PrayerNoah's ArkCreationEaster

The sessions are free to everyone - why not come and find out more about Jesus together?
