Inviting you to a messy musical summer

At St Nicolas Messy Church we are putting on a musical and we want to invite you to be part of it!

The musical, Jonah-Man Jazz,  is short, funny and tells the story of a whale, a man and his god. We plant o rehearse and perform it in the space of a week and have plenty of fun along the way.

During the week we will rehearse the musical together and there will be a performance on Sunday 25 August (at Messy Church) followed by a barbecue for performers and audience. It will be a great way for families to spend time together this summer.

Pick up a leaflet for more details.

Mountains of Messiness

May's Messy Church is nearly here. We're meeting as usual on the fourth Sunday of the month (Sunday 26 May) for lots of messy fun, this time focused on a 'mountain' theme. There will be icing, paint and other sticky things to enjoy plus a mountain of food at the end of the afternoon! It will be a great way to start half term so do join us from 4pm.

June's Messy Church will be on Sunday 22 June and we've got some special activities lined up plus a visit from the Bishop of Warwick. It will be the last of our sessions looking at Bible landscapes and a good session for the whole family with some activities that may especially appeal to dads!

Nearer the time there will be more info about July's programme but don't forget that in August we are planning to hold our very own Messy Church musical from Monday 19 - Sunday 25 August. Each weekday morning there will be a Messy Church session in which we learn a song or two from the musical plus make some related crafts (possibly props, scenery and costumes). There will be some refreshments too so that we have plenty of energy. Then on Saturday we'll have a brief dress rehearsal and on Sunday 25 August we will have Messy Church as usual concluding with a performance of our musical.

If you can't make the whole week it is possible to come for just a day or two and learn one of the songs. If you'd like more details there will be some leaflets at Messy Church in the coming weeks.
