Messy Church


Messy Church takes place in school every half-term in the KS1 hall at 3.15pm.  It's a time when we get together to learn more about Jesus and have fun through story, craft, games and worship.


On 24th September we welcomed our children and their families to our first Messy Church Celebration this school year.  We learnt about the rich farmer who stored lots and lots of grain in his barns and didn't share his wealth with anyone.  There were lots of craft activities to join in including a prayer wall and of course  Faith, our "Prayer Bear", joined us to help us pray and thank God for everything we have. 


We had another special Messy Church on 28th January.  As the children's core value for this half term is COURAGE, we looked at the story of David and Goliath from 1Samuel17.  The children really enjoyed making shields, David's sling and 5 stones as well as a Goliath mask and seeing how small they were against a 9ft giant!  They especially enjoyed getting messy making their edible snowmen.


The time together ended with a special prayer time about being brave and courageous, using our prayer bear Faith, which we pass around in a circle so everyone can have a hold.  There were some new families taking part with one little boy commenting "Thanks miss, I've enjoyed EVERYTHING I've made today".
