This month’s Messy Church is exploring our Holiday Club theme of Backpacking !
At this year’s Holiday Club, we will be thinking about travelling around Europe backpacking. Jesus also travelled all around the counties near where he lived – although we don’t think he had a rucksack !
At Messy Church this Saturday, through our usual fun mix of crafts, activities, songs & a story, we’ll be finding out some of what Jesus got up to and why he travelled so much.
Hope to see you on Saturday 6th July at 3:30pm. Bring a friend !
