Messy Church day is proper fun for all

Rutherglen Reformer - - News From The Pews -

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.
