Messy Church
The idea of Messy Church is for children -accompanied by a parent or carer- to spend two hours having fun in a safe environment (see the picture in the picture gallery). Creative play, games etc. will fill part of the time and a simple meal will be provided. There will be a short time (approximately 10-15 mins.) in which Christian worship praise and learning will take place. The event is held on each 3rd Moday of the month in the Hall of the Curry Rivel School. Donations towards the cost of materials & food are welcome.
