Annual Report for Messy Church 2016

Messy Church continued in 2016 though attendance was once again up and down!
Despite the numbers looking low we are seeing a group of young and non-churched families attending and bringing their friends.

We have contact with 50 families on a regular basis via Messy Church, with children as young as 2 weeks up to 13!

A massive “thank you” is given from both Emma and myself to the support we get from all the volunteers, Messy Church could not happen without the support of the various teams of volunteers and the willingness of the local ministers to come and support.

Our “creative” team are amazing and will try their hands had all the wonderful craft that Emma dreams up!

The kitchen team, led by Liz and John, who sort out the drinks and the meal and the wonderful wash up team from the Methodist Church. The tidy up team, the set up team and “those who don’t quite fit into a team but are Messy helpers”!
A special thank you goes to the young people who have made a commitment to help and come straight from school to help.... and then they bring their friends too!! Without the support and encouragement of all the volunteer helpers Messy wouldn’t happen each month.

We are so thankful to the support from the Church leaders who come along and deliver the talk – not always easy when children have horses to ride or light sabres to fight with!

I am always happy to talk to new volunteers whether to help with the crafts or to come in and help to serve the meal and tidy up.
