Messy Church is a way of being church for families involving fun, it is found across the world and its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. We are now doing Messy Church four times per year in Luncarty Church Centre, our next two will be Sundays 1st September and 8th December from 3pm and finishing with a family tea at 5pm. Please pass the invitation on.
For Messy Church on 1st September we would like to collect particular items for activites: lids of big coffee jars, Philadelphia or small butter tubs and to borrow cookie cutters that are the shapes of stars and moon (not other shapes). Please let us know if nearer the time you think you could donate apples from your tree or small flowers with strong stalks for arranging. Please let us know if you would like to make a donation of food for the meal or help in any other way.
