Messy Church “Feeding the 5000”

Messy Church is a fun way of being church for families. A chance for children and adults to be creative, explore faith and enjoy a meal.

At our first Messy Church on 18th June we found out how Jesus turned 5 loaves and 2 fishes into an enormous picnic! We made boats from big boxes (to hide in like Jesus did), painted 5000 (ish!) people on a hillside, made our own bread loaves, shimmery fish, and fishy biscuits! We had fun playing with water, made a mess gathering up (rice crispy) crumbs, celebrated and ate together. Above all we learned that just like the little boy in the story we can all do amazing things with Jesus in our lives.

Here are a few photos from our first Messy Church on 18th June.

Our next Messy Church will be in the Autumn. Join our Facebook page to receive updates. www.facebook.com/StBarnabasMessyChurch
