What is Messy Church?
Messy Church is a new way of being church for families, involving fun. Messy Church is a church, not a craft club that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Messy Church's values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Our aim for Messy Church is to welcome families from within and outside of Church to worship and learn about Jesus together.When and where will it take place? Messy Church will take place on Saturday 6 December 2014 - 3.00pm - 5.00pm At St John the Baptist Church, Middle Street, Beeston.
Who is it for? It is suitable for all families with children aged 11 and under (Children must be accompanied by an adult)
What to expect? It will kick off with a Messy Church Sheep Nativity Trail around Beeston Town Centre (knitted sheep of various shapes, sizes and colours will be hidden in some shops in Beeston) then it will be back to Church for a selection of crafts, a Celebration andthen everyone will sit down together for a meal.
Watch this space for future Messy Church dates...
