Saturday 12th August
St Mary the Virgin Parish Church 9.30 – 11.00
Theme: The Still Small Voice
Where and when do you hear God speak? Is it in the busy, noisy workplace, or school, or on the train? Elijah thought he was the only person left in Israel still loyal to God. God spoke to Elijah to reassure him … but how did God speak? Was it in the wind, or the earthquake, or the fire …
Come to Messy Church to hear more of this story, to discover other parts of the story of Elijah.
Come to Messy Church where a warm welcome awaits you. As you come in, you will be welcomed to sit and eat breakfast – toast with a drink … and a surprise extra.
After hearing the story, you can go and find out more about each part of it through a variety of activities. These include retelling the story using Lego, tasting naan bread, making a telephone, blowing fish, making coded messages …
Finally there is a time for celebration, with the story, a hymn, and a prayer.
All are welcome!
