Messy Church September

We were looking at the theme of “The Mustard Seed” and thinking about how the largest and smallest things are all so important and work together.  We planted mustard seeds and went on a treasure hunt for pennies to put on a map of our area to show what we treasure in our community.  Everyone had a lovely time followed by delicious sausage casserole and stewed apples and custard.  Thank you to everyone who came and to the team.  Next Messy Church in on Sunday 13th October.  All welcome.
