Then we eat!

All Age services are a bit like Messy Church but take place on Sunday mornings, also 6 (or so) times a year.  The aims are the same but the format is a little bit different because it involves the whole church congregation.  The service lasts no more than an hour and there is the same opportunity for creativity through craft, reflection on a Bible story, fun through games and hospitality through refreshments and snacks (after the service).
The theme this year for Messy Church and All Age services is Encounters with Jesus, so come along and be prepared to hear about people who met Jesus and what happened to them.  Dates for this year are below.  Everything is on a Sunday with the obvious exception of the Christmas Day service which is a 50 minute informal service.
Please note that these are family events and children must come with an adult who is responsible for them.
