Messy Church for Adults!
As many of our congregation didn't know what Messy Church as all about, and also that they thought the children shouldn't have all the fun we had a Messy Church Service for All! Sue Howard led with theme of 'Where are you nearer to God's heart!' Based on Dorothy Gurney's poem 'God's Heart,' the activities of designing a garden, writing poetry, making flowers (paper plates and wool were required), discussing where you felt nearer to God were enjoyed.
