Messy Church

Route 66 update

As you know over the last 18 months we haven’t been able to meet due to the restrictions of the pandemic. We have kept in touch with our families through delivering monthly activity bags which have been well received but now it is time to think about how we will move forward as the country ‘reopens’. I, along with the church leadership team, have thought long and hard about how children’s work will look at St Mary’s in the future and it has been decided that a new approach is needed. We have chosen to run a ‘Messy Church’ style service on a monthly basis as this will allow families to attend church together and we will also provide a sandwich tea after the activities. Messy Church has proven to be very successful in other churches around Derby and we are hoping it will flourish at St Mary’s as well. It is similar to the holiday club we run over the Summer where we explore Bible stories through craft and ‘hands on’ activities. So, if you would like to be involved in the Messy Church team or if you know of any families who might like to attend then please speak with myself or any member of the leadership team.

The times will be 4-6pm and the service dates will be:

12th September

10th October

14th November

12th December
