Although we cannot meet in person for Messy Church until the building reopens, we encourage all messy households to use these resources for May here. These are themed around the story of Jesus having breakfast on the beach with his friends, and eating together -- something we do a lot of when we are together in person!
Here's a message from Kate:
I do hope this finds you all well and safe. Children and families have continued to be very much on my mind as schools remain closed, and with all the challenges of staying healthy, active and engaged. It is a such a difficult time for us all, and a long time in children's lives, especially if they are missing friends and their usual routine. We can't wait to get back to normal and to welcome you into church again, but this month, we commend to you the resources produced by Messy Church around the theme of Jesus having breakfast on the beach with his friends. Let's hope we can all enjoy messy fun, activities and share food together again soon. In the meantime, take care, and please let us know if we can support you in any way through the church. Kate
