MESSY (new)

Messy Nativity December 16th 2018

"Round the back!" yelled the innkeeper who got more grumpy as a procession of shepherds, wise men and women, and a host of angels arrived at the Star Inn to visit the baby Jesus. We explored what the gift of Jesus means to all of us,  and were given felt doves for our Christmas trees to remember the peace Jesus brings. We made Jesus in a manger buns and filled plastic baubles with a jelly baby Jesus scene. Peter's group discussed what the Roman Emperors and the Herods were up to at the time of Jesus birth. We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and demolished the cake and the usual toast!

Messy Church  -  a fun way to worship for all ages - and we are all different!

At St Mary's Acton we welcome newborns to nineties and we try to offer something for everyone.   Faith-based, each month we have a different theme with songs of worship, led by our small band, bible storytelling in drama form acted out by both children and adults, an active prayer time and a choice of craft activities, one of which is always edible. If craft is not your thing there is the option to look at the bible readings and discuss the theme of the day. We end with time together (around 11.15 am) to drink and eat mountains of toast, cake and more!

Messy Church is a relaxed and fun place to be at 10am usually the third Sunday of every month. Come and give it a try - you will be made very welcome.

Messy Church started in an Anglican church near Portsmouth, UK in 2004 and has grown into an international movement operating across a wide range of Christian denominations and traditions. It became part of the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) in 2006 with the publication of the first Messy Church book by founder Lucy Moore. Messy Church enables people of all ages to belong to Christ together through their local church. It is a way of being church which is particularly suited to families but welcoming to all.
