All Saint's Church Hall
Messy Church will be meeting again next Sunday morning, 4th July, in the All Saints’ Hall, (Selborne Road entrance, please).
As always, we shall be keeping your health and safety uppermost in our minds. With that in mind, we shall continue to take every reasonable measure to protect everyone who attends Messy Church. So, we ask for your active co-operation, please, in ensuring that, before each person enters the Hall, the hand sanitiser stationed at the door is used – and again as each of you departs from the All Saints’ Hall. Of course, thorough hand washing remains of the utmost importance too.
Because ‘Messy Church’ is intended for all ages, we are always keen for it to be a whole family occasion. So, we hope to see lots of children and ‘grown-ups’ present to learn more about this month’s theme, which is –
‘THE STORY OF BLIND BARTIMAEUS’
[Perhaps, before you come along on Sunday, you might like to read this wonderful Bible story, which can be found in Saint Mark’s Gospel (Chapter 10 and verses 46 to 52). It tells of a blind beggar named Bartimaeus being enabled to see by a miracle of the healing powers of the Lord Jesus. It’s a lovely story of true faith in God!]
Please try your best to be there for 11.00 am so that we can make a prompt start. We realise that some families like to keep as much as possible of the afternoon free for their other plans. A prompt start means that everyone is happy. Isn’t that what we all want!
We have been very busy preparing several great new crafts for the children to have fun getting messy with.
As this will be the last Messy Church before the School holidays, we have decided to have a party! So, we shall be serving party food which we know the children will love! Food is a key element of our gathering together, of course, we do ask you to try your best to stay with us for that sharing experience.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday and hope you will make a special effort to come along and join in the usual fun and friendship.
(on behalf of all members of our Messy Church Team)
