Fun at Messy Harvest

On Saturday 6th October, 47 parents and children came to have messy fun!  They made bird feeders, insect houses, nut catchers, printed bunting, conker paint pictures and a thanksgiving tree.

Tea, coffee and biscuits were available throughout the afternoon and after the Harvest celebration, everyone enjoyed a meal together before going home with the things they had made.

Look out for our next Messy Church – Messy Christmas on Saturday 1st December 4 – 6 pm.

Fun at Messy Church

On Saturday 7th July we had our summer fun Messy Church and despite England playing in the World Cup from 3 pm, 36 children and parents came along.  We did have a screen showing the live football game too!

The children made some super crafts including tin can mobiles, hobby horses, peg cars and the chocolate fountain with fruit was a great hit!

After the celebration time, we all sat down and enjoyed a picnic tea together.

In May, many of us enjoyed a glorious walk to Osmaston via a bluebell wood.  It was a great opportunity to marvel at God’s amazing creation in Walk 1our  wonderful countryside, spend time with each other and benefit from the exercise!  We were all refreshed with drinks and cake afterwards.

Opening of Undercroft

After much hard work, time and effort, our undercroft was finally reopened after being refurbished.  We had a small celebration to mark this special occasion and gave thanks to Malcolm Bridges (and his wife Gill), our churchwarden and head of maintenance at the time who had overseen the whole project and Kevin and Lisa Lawrence who had beautifully redecorated the rooms.
