Where next for Messy Church!!
 
On 12th October the Messy Church Team met at the Baptist Church to discuss ‘what next' for the Messy Church Group. For more information about the outcomes of this meeting, contact Susan Meah 01954-781258 or Revd Dr Beth Cope 07720330272

 

This is for you...are you able to help?

Are you able to help? More people are needed to prepare crafts for MESSY CHURCH.  We offer six different craft activities and we will provide all materials and instructions well in advance so that you have plenty of time to prepare. You will need to make a sample and, if necessary, do some advance preparation for children to make the craft.

It is one way in which we attempt to reach out into the wider community. It can be exhausting, but those of us who have been involved believe that it is important. I hope that you are supporting Messy Church through prayer. However, we would really appreciate more help. Would you be able to transport the crockery and cutlery to and from the church and the village hall? Perhaps you wouldn't mind cutting out shapes for a craft activity while you're watching TV? Or you might like to research craft activities on the internet for us? You could go shopping for craft resources?

Maybe you could supply a dozen cakes or bake a large lasagne or cottage pie. It takes time to set up the activities, to do the washing up and to tidy up. We'd love you to join us at Messy Church, but even if you can't (or don't want to) any of the above jobs are things you could help us with. It doesn't even have to be a monthly commitment. Maybe you'd like to coordinate offers of help and make sure the jobs are covered.

I would love to hear how you can support us. It would be an encouragement if you can let us know that you are praying. You can contact me (Susan Meah) on 01954-781258 or susanmeah@hotmail.com

Mini-Jaffas - 4th, 11th & 25th February
 
Mini-Jaffas is for parents with pre-school children. Mini-Jaffas meet at the Village Institute Longstanton or the Church at 10.30am. for a short informal time of worship followed by craft activities, related to the theme and refreshments.
 
This is an excellent way of introducing young children to worship, as well as being a good way of meeting other parents within the local community. Those who have had their children baptised will find this a great way of keeping their baptismal promises. Just turn up and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome at either venue.

MUSTARD SEED
 
Every Thursday at Over  - Between 10am & 12pm.
 
Mustard Seed is a coffee shop with a difference and takes place in St Mary's Church Hall, Over on a Thursday morning (10 a.m. - 12 Noon). It is not a church event but is open to everyone from baby to 100+. What we are seeking to achieve is quite simple - a place where anyone can come and have a chat over coffee/tea (served in individual pots) + home-made cake. And if you are lucky we may even have hot chocolate available.

Depending on the week, we also:

• sell locally grown produce (as available)
• sell home-made crafts (usually the 1st Thursday of the month)
• have a selection of 2nd hand books (donations always welcome)
• and there could be more!!

Families with young children are welcome, and we will make more "toys" etc. available should demand increase.

Volunteer help is always welcome - just come along and offer your services.
