Messy Church day is proper fun for all
Burnside Blairbeth Church marked Easter by getting a bit messy.
The church held both a Messy Communion and a Messy Easter service, continuing the popular Messy Church series of monthly services.
The regular services are aimed at families, offering a chance to worship and learn about God in a more relaxed way than on a Sunday morning.
It has proved a popular idea at the church, and minister Rev William Wilson was keen to extend the idea for the Easter celebrations.
He said: “We were very pleased with how both of them went .
“Messy Church is established on the first Saturday of each month and we felt it would be good to have a communion service in a Messy Church, with Good Friday the perfect day to hold it.
“It really allows families to come and worship together, through crafts, celebration, songs and eating together.”
The next Messy Church service will be held on May 6.
