The Church

At Messy Church this month we looked at the first church and our Church today.

We followed a church trail, made churches out of junk material and made people with cress hair, to remind us the church is the people, as well as the building.

We also made a new altar cloth with our names and faces on, to show people we are the Church today.

At Messy Church this month we made kites and flew them outside, to remind us that the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost like a rushing wind. We also painted pictures and made cakes to represent the flames of Pentecost. Pentecost is the birthday of the Church so the children made cards which were displayed in church for the Sunday congregation to see.
