Our Last Session …..

DUSTY DRAWING

Neither do I condemn you

"Jesus breaks the Rules, shows Compassion and Fairness"

Sunday 8th March

Remember what dust and water make at MESSY CHURCH!  This month we had a happy and relaxed afternoon, slightly down on attendees (12 children plus parents/carers), however our activities went well, we welcomed back some absent friends, and the meal was appreciated.  We cannot judge the success of Messy Church solely on our numbers!

Our Last Session …..

"DAZZLING DISCIPLES" -
Sunday 12th January 

Abram Stars

Initially taking as our inspiration God's covenant with Abram (Genesis 15:5), we were hopefully all Dazzling Disciples in a great team effort notwithstanding two of our number being away at present, Sue in New Zealand and our Minister, Debbie, in Egypt on Sabbatical!
