Messy Church Jubilee Celebrations – 15th May

A Special Messy Church

 in the garden of St James Vicarage (Church Lane)

Sunday 15th May 4pm 

 

Jubilee Celebrations! 

Come and get ready for the Jubilee, making bunting, crowns, paper chains, a community patchwork banner for the Church, Union Jack windmills and more!

Bring your own picnic, enjoy the sun (the weather forecast looks good…) and enter our children’s hamper draw! (Kindly donated by Morrisons)

Cakes and cold drinks provided. All welcome! Please accompany any children.

Messy Church is free to attend. A donation on the day will help us to keep running Messy Church.  

What is Messy Church?  

Messy Church is a kind of Church experience that focuses on creativity, celebration and hospitality! Anyone is welcome to attend. Most of the activities are aimed at children and young people 0-13 but we always make sure there is something for older young people and adults too. Creativity is for everyone!

What happens at Messy Church? 

All kinds of things!

We start with lots of craft activities connected with the theme. These might involve making, thinking, decorating, exploring or experimenting by painting, sticking, pouring, writing, colouring, eating and more! You will always have something to take home with you! Parents can join in with the activities and enjoy a cup of tea 😊After the messy time, we gather together for a story connected to our theme, a song and a prayer. We often finish with a party tea, so you don’t even have to cook tea that night!

Do I have to book? 

No – just turn up! We’d love to see you. If you enjoy yourselves – tell your friends!

What does it cost? 

Messy Church is free to attend! There is a pot for donations for people to contribute what they are able, so we can continue to resource Messy Church and make it free for those who might otherwise struggle to attend.

What if one of us has special needs? 

We aim to be as inclusive as possible and actively welcome neurodiverse people and any with physical or learning disabilities. We have a ramp and accessible toilet. We aim to be a nut free Church and label food so you know it is safe to eat. If you are concerned we might not be able to meet your needs, get in touch and we’ll talk things through with you.

COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Information (updated 31.1.22)

You are encouraged to sanitize your hands on entering and leaving our buildings and respect people’s distance.

We recommend that masks are worn when entering/leaving and moving around the buildings, please do remove your masks once sitting down if you wish.

Social distancing aisles remain (on the right as you face the altar) at St Andrew’s and St James’ for those who wish to ensure more personal space.

We will continue to distribute pre-intincted wafers during communion rather than reinstate the chalice at present, until strong feeling emerges in our congregations to do otherwise.

If you can get access to Lateral Flow Tests, we would like to encourage you to take a test prior to coming to our services if you are able.
