The Parable of The Good Samaritan was the theme for Messy Church on Sunday 25th February 2018.  A very successful service.

All joined in the singing the hymn 'Jesus Love is very Wonderful'   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 3rd December Advent was the theme with the young people preparing for the coming of Christ. To help counting down the days  an Advent candle was made.

There was also a treasure hunt around the hall and Church, letters were collected to spell out the carol Away in a Manger. This was sung when the minister brought the activities together. 

Adults and children also helped to colour in cards which will be distributed around the Parish.

Harvest was the theme for the Messy Church held on Sunday 22nd October.  Jim Taylor with his many years of experience as a planter in Malaysia, showed children how to use a grinding stone and mortar and pestle to grind wheat, barley, coffee, tea, cocoa, and many other harvest produce.  Other activities included breakfast, making windmills, cake decorations and dookin' for apples using a fork, plus samples of Fairtrade products.   A short service of praise was led by Andy Dingwall.
