Life Lately: Messy Church

So we held Messy Church this month on a theme of the Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Despite certain team members dropping the ball (cough...me...cough), we had 36 kids with their adults, joining in with lovely crafts and activities, some of the liveliest worship we've ever had, and a great dinner together.

We hope to be back again in September for another Messy Church event, more crafts, more activities, more worship, more food, and definitely more Jesus.

Hope to see you then!
