Sunday 12 June was messy in all sorts of ways, not least the weather which ensured that those taking part in Nuneaton carnival were wet and chilly by mid afternoon. Nevertheless we had a mini Messy Church taster with some Pentecost themed crafts including kites and windmills and we raced paper boats across a paddling pool, blowing them from one side to the other. There was also some messy food - beautiful cup-cakes decorated as mini birthday cakes to remind us that Pentecost is the birthday of the Church.
Now we are looking forward to our Messy Church launch on Sunday 25th September, 4-6pm when there will be plenty more craft activites for all the family, a special story and song time and then a delicious meal... perhaps even a barbecue if the weather is sunnier by then!
On Sunday 12th June there will be a Messy Church taster at St Nicolas, taking place around the carnival events. Come and join us for family craft activities, a short story and some refreshments.... and find out about our messy plans for September!
