Messy Church – January 2023

Messy Nativity 15th January 2023

We were on Lake Galilee on Sunday enacting the story of Jesus calling the fishermen brothers Peter and Andrew, James and John to put down their nets and follow him – which they did leaving puzzled Dad  Zebedee!  They were to “fish for people”  and we too thought about what we could do to grow God’s kingdom in our neighbourhood. For our prayers we had fun producing a huge “net-work of love”,  then decorated fish biscuits and made beaded fish keyrings while Peter’s group talked about the many people in the Bible who had responded to God’s call.  We wished each other well for the week ahead with a loud rendition of Now go in peace, and set to on the fishfinger sandwiches.  Yum!

Join us next time for the Baptism of Jesus, 19th February at 10am.
