It was wonderful to re-open Messy Church in the open at St Bart’s today and even more wonderful to see so many return. Rachael told us about how resilient Moses was, getting up again every time life knocked him down and our reading was all about the Israelites thinking they were at the mercy of the Egyptian army but then crossing the Red Sea to safety.
The children made models of Moses and the sea waters parting and Sam showed everyone the example he had made earlier. Ellie said the prayers for us and while refreshments were served the Balloon Wizard made balloon animals for all the children and anything else they could challenge him with.
It was a very special day and so much fun!
