Messy Church is here in Corsham!
St Bart’s has been running Messy Church once a month in Church House since January 2015. Messy Church is for families, involving fun and crafts. Its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. It starts with themed crafts, followed by a short bible reading and song, finishing with a simple meal. Messy Church is for all ages, and children must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.
Messy Church is held on the Second Friday of each month (Jan 18 onwards) with doors open at 3:30pm and running until about 6:00pm. For further information please call Sue or Reg Lambert on 01249 248293. Join in with us and have fun – finishing Messy Church with a meal is an added bonus – no need to get those pans out when you get home!
As an small example of what we do: In September 2016, the theme was ‘I am the light for the world’. We explored the theme of light at a dark time of the year, both actual light and the symbolism of light. We had three craft tables – lanterns, spiral decorations and stained-glass windows. All the crafts were extremely popular and great fun, and examples of the finished products are shown below: (Double Click to enlarge)
