Happy Birthday Messy Church (May 2015)

What an amazing time we  had on Sunday 10 May. This was our 1st anniversary celebration.

Gavin and his band of puppeteers joined us from St John's, Hebburn. We danced, we sang, we wrote out prayers for friends and family, we learned more about Jesus' love for us.  We eat together  and  then Thalia, Lynne and Donkey cut into our birthday cake. Tired out... we went home...two hours of Messy Church togetherness.



Thank you to all who came and made it a great celebration - and thank you to all the helpers for your dedication and hard work.

Come along, take a look, spread the word.
