We had a great Messy Church 24th July at St Bart's. The theme was on Jesus' teaching, the first of three on the subject. It was all about the day Jesus spent talking to a crowd of 5,000 people from a boat and how he fed them afterwards with five loaves and two fishes.
The children were team captains and after sailing a boat over the paddling pool to collect 5 scrabble tiles representing the loaves, they had to make words with the tiles for points and then go fishing for two magnetic fish from a bowl. All the fish had scores on them and at the end of the game Daniel won with over thirty points. Well Done!
This was all done in the tent outside the Church dodging the rain, but after a song with black clouds looming it was back inside Church to make Funky Fish Sun glasses. These were very good and after another song and The Grace, there were ice creams. They were very good too!
