Our banner

During our first three Messy Church events (September - November) we made a banner together. Here is the final result. It is hanging in St Nicolas Church, Nuneaton accompanied by an explanation of what each part represents - come and have a look!

Messy New Year!

Happy New Year.

What do cress, scrolls, tents and oranges have in common? They'll all be features of our craft activities at Messy Church in just over a week's time. With Christmas already a distant memory, the St Nicolas Team are gearing up for a messy 2012 and are almost ready for a a full programme of creativity on Sunday 22 January (4-6pm).

The event is all about 'growing' and 'journeying', plus there will be the chance to some den building! If that all sounds a bit obscure our focal story will be about Jesus as a boy and what happened to him when he went on a journey with his family.

We'll also be thinking more about Jesus growing up with the help of some Christingles or Christ-lights. If you don't know what they are, all the more reason to come along and have a go at making one and then light it for our story time.

To continue with our journeying theme we'll also be having a picnic tea - bring a travel rug if you have one!

See you soon.
