June Messy Church
We had a busy day carrying on our Creation theme, this time on fish. We began our service by learning about Jonah being eaten by a big fish and he has now been added to our Jesse Tree, where you can see him in the belly of the whale. We then made fish to hang around our necks, which we filled with bands of coloured sand. A film about Jesus calling four of his disciples followed. They were Simon, Andrew, James and John, who were all fishermen. After The Grace, we had our drinks with chocolate biscuits and were joined by a family from Germany who were travelling along the canal in a narrow boat. They were surprised when Nigel welcomed them in their native tongue and they wrote in the visitors book how welcome they had been made.
