A FANTASTIC "Messy Church" Day! 12 November 1016

We all had the most FANTASTIC day on
Saturday, 12 November (2016)
at St Hildeburgh's
'MESSY CHURCH' 
in Hoylake 
... it just keeps getting bigger 
and better every time!




Our theme this time was "Thankfulness in Autumn" and there were lots of fun and exciting things to do!

Pictured Below:  
Peter Ham (one of our 'Messy Church'
leaders) explains a few things 
before we get started ...

A few of the first to arrive sign in ...

A few games and puzzles to get started ...

 

The rules for this game seem to have beaten a few
of our 'Messy' volunteers ..

More games and puzzles ...





 


 


Tiimmmbbbeerrrrrr .... !


A little bit of quiet drawing
in the church ...


 Making your own "Messy Pud" is fun ...





 Lots of craft activities - making things
to take home and keep ...








 An enthusiastic 'Messy Church-Goer"
tells our Rev Paul (Vicar of Hoylake)
what he's been doing ...




AS 'Messy Church was the day befere
Remembrance Sunday, one of our
craft activities was making our own
Remembrance poppies ...

We went into the Church
for some praise
and worship ...




Lizzie led us in two, fun worship songs - 
We almost got the words and actions right ...



 




Remembering that our theme for the day
was 'Being Thankful', Peter told us the
story of how Jesus healed ten sick people
but only one remembered to say 'Thank you'.
So, we all said a big 'Thank you' to all our
family and friends, but most of all, we said
a big 'Thank you' to JESUS ... 






 
And last, but not least, we all shared a hot meal
together ... FISH FINGERS with LOADS of
Tommie Ketchup ...
 








So, we all had the most 
BRILLIANT TIME EVER!

We Just can't wait for the next
"MESSY CHURCH"

Why not come along to our next one?

There's no charge for anything (including the meal)
- just make sure you book and that children
are accompanied by an adult(s)

 ... and finally ...

... When we say 'all ages welcome' -we mean it ...!
