Messy Church on Sunday 22nd April was another fun-packed service. The theme was all about the Lord being our shepherd and after a colourful sheep-related address by John Headon, there was a hunt for letters around the church for the children. After some help from the adults, the children were able to spell out the words 'Sheep, Shepherd and Lamb'. The children also enjoyed making their own sheep out of toilet rolls, cotton wool and stickers and listened as Rachael told the story of The Lost Sheep.
The service finished with the 'I Wish I were a Butterfly' song and some delicious sheep-themed cakes. What a busy morning!
