According to Margaret Grove, it isn’t always messy, but it is always fun! “Messy Church is an active way of exploring the fundamentals of the faith. It is Church for all ages from the very young to the very old. It is a relaxed way of sharing time together as we explore the mysteries of faith,” says Margaret.
The Uniting Church in Webster Street, Bongaree, on Bribie Island hosts Messy Church on the second Sunday of the month from February to November inclusive and Margaret says that everyone is invited and welcomed. “Messy Church commences at 4.00p.m. sharp, with games that highlight a particular theme for the day. Everyone can have a part, even if it is cheering the younger ones on as they play out an exuberant game. Next, it is time to explore the theme further with quieter and sometimes messier activities that add more understanding to the day’s themes.
There are activities for all ages and it is so refreshing to see all ages of folk working together on these,” she said. “By 5.00p.m. we are ready to share what we have learned in a “Celebration” and at 5.30p.m. we sit down to a delicious meal together. Messy Church concludes around 6.00p.m. It is an early night for a family and that is why many families including grandparents, parents, and children all enjoy the evening.
For those who don’t have their family close, please feel that you are family and come along to share the joy.” The next Messy Church is Sunday, 10th March. For further information, please telephone Margaret on 5497 5777.
