Messy Church : Jesus goes Backpacking – Saturday 6th July

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 !

P.S.  Our Holiday Club takes place in August.  Click here for more details.

Holiday Club 2019 is “Backpackers”

We’re excited to announce that the 2019 Holiday Club will be called ‘Backpackers’.

With a travel theme, there’s plenty of exploring, fun and games, making, songs, drama and more, as the children journey through European cities.

At Backpackers, children will travel with Jesus as he arrives in Jerusalem and explore the events of his last week on earth through the awesome accounts from the Gospel of Matthew.  There’ll be the normal mixture of Fun, Games, Craft, Bible Stories and Songs, plus the chance to perform Drama and Song.

Backpackers will take place from Monday 12th August to Friday 16th, from 10am to 12noon.  These is also an opening ‘preview’ service for all the family on Sunday 11th August at 10:30am.

The cost is £10 for the week, this is to cover refreshments and materials (a reduction to £5 for additional children in the same family).
