All are welcome to either showing with no obligation to continue with the course. Watch out for further details.
Messy Church Coming to the Benefice in October!Some exciting news for our Benefice. We will be starting
Messy Church in October as a major new mission initiative. We
are fortunate that we have been able to engage the services of Jo
Gavin, the children’s worker at Christchurch Orpington to help us
get the project up and running.
Jo has great experience in this area and runs Messy Church at Christchurch. Our two PCC’s have agreed the financial commitment required for the project and now it is up to all of us to make this happen.
For the venture to work we need volunteers and that means you and me. Messy Church will be running once a month between 4pm and 6pm on a Saturday and hopefully if we get enough volunteers, helping can be on a rota basis thereby not putting too much of a burden on a small number of people. Messy Church involves Crafts, Worship and Hospitality and so there are different ways in which each of us can help. Please do pray for this project and consider volunteering. If you would like to volunteer and/or want to know more about it, then please contact me. You can find out more about messy church on their website www.messychurch.org.uk
