Messy Church hasn’t been stopped by the coronavirus outbreak…it’s just moved to Messy Church at Home!

We are sad that we still cannot meet together at Messy Church for the time being, but please use these activity sheets and share them with family and friends (download links are given below the browsing windows).

Worksheets for Autumn 2020

There are three new monthly sheets for autumn (September – November). The content is a mixture of work by Heather Tisbury, adapted from the BRF, and the Diocese has released the Harvest activity for October.

Sunday School is held during Parish Communion at 9:00am on most Sundays . Children up to 12 are taken into the vestry where they enjoy their own stories and songs, while the adults have a quiet service in the church.

There’s no Sunday School during the Family Service on the Second Sunday of the Month.
