Messy Church

Dear Messy Church families,

We hope you are all well and we want to wish a very Happy Birthday to Finleigh who will be 5 on the 20th November.

With love to you all from everyone at Messy Church.

 

We will really miss seeing you on 12th November- we were planning to make some stars – perhaps you could make some at home instead?

Jesus wants us to shine like stars – then everyone will know we are friends of Jesus.
Please make any sort of star at home and bring it to church – there is a box in the porch
We hope can fill the church with stars in December.

Make from Perla beads

Make from cardboard

Worship resources for families

The Diocese of Portsmouth’s Board of Education has created lots of special resources for children home from school at the moment. They’re too good not to share as widely as possible – so have a look at the wonderful material you can use by following this link:

Because of the coronavirus crisis, it will not be possible for us to meet for Messy Church until further notice.

With love from the Messy Church team.

Messy Church is a new way of experiencing Church, with

• a choice of crafts, games and fun things to do;
• a short, fun time of prayer and praise;
• sharing a home-made tea together.

Who’s Messy Church for? Messy Church is for everyone: families of all shapes and sizes who find it hard to get to church on Sundays: come and be part of the Messy Church family! Children need to be accompanied by an adult.

Where? St Nicholas Church, Wickham (on the corner of the A32 and B2177 – the church carpark is between two tall hedges on the same side of the road as the church on the B2177, Southwick Road).

What day? Every 2nd Thursday of the month in school term-time.
What time? Arrive from 3.30pm for a snack and a drink. Activities start at 4.00pm, we’ll eat at about 5.00pm and finish by 5.30pm.

Does it cost anything? There’s no charge for Messy Church, but if you’re able to contribute towards the cost of tea, donations are always very welcome.

‘What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We’ve had a lovely time at Messy Church today. I thought that the bible story theme was very good and I can carry on talking about that at home. The children thought it was all great. We all enjoyed the variety of activities and the tasty dinner: it was nice to sit down with another family and share. Thank you to everyone because I can see that a lot of effort went into what you did.’
