Messy Church

Messy Church is all about families having fun together-playing games, doing craft work, hearing Bible stories, singing, and sharing a meal together. It is for children from birth to P7 age and we run it roughly every month during the winter. If you have any questions, just email David at david@granton.org.uk [ai1ec tag_name="messychurch" view="agenda" events_limit="3"]

Then they will leave for their own activities after their hymn and come back into church after the sermon and chat.. What...
