Messy fun at church

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Days To Remember -

Chil­dren, par­ents and grand­par­ents en­joyed a cre­ative af­ter­noon on Satur­day when they came to­gether for Messy Church.

More than 80 peo­ple at­tended the arty workshop at the Willes­bor­ough Bap­tist Church, in Hythe Road, which this month looked into the bi­ble story of Sam­son.

The ses­sion in­cluded arts and craft, a jacket po­tato din­ner and celebration time, led by pup­peteer Roger White­ley.

Chil­dren and fam­i­lies co­or­di­na­tor Jan Haywood said: “Messy Church has been go­ing on for two years and we’re see­ing fam­i­lies that wouldn’t nor­mally spend time to­gether re­ally gel dur­ing the ses­sions.

“For us, it is im­por­tant that fam­i­lies have a place where they can come to­gether. We try and make the ses­sions as fun as we can.”

Messy Church is held on the sec­ond Satur­day of ev­ery month, with the next ses­sion planned for Fe­bru­ary 8.
