Is it worth waiting for? And no, we don’t mean the fishfingers and chips that were being cooked for tea!
Messy Church on Sunday was all about what we are waiting for in Advent - and it isn’t Father Christmas. We made edible snowmen, and Christmas boxes with sweets inside. We played Advent Calendar Roulette and had an indoor snowball fight. We sang songs, watched a video and decorated our tree with Christmas baubles filled with prayers we wrote.
And guess what we discovered - Christmas isn’t about Father Christmas and shopping and stress and sweets and hassle and arguments. It’s about celebrating the birth of a baby - Jesus. But you know what - even when you are waiting for Jesus you get to take home a comic, a present and a sweet!
Our next Messy Church is on January 10th at 3.30pm. So, come along to Nailsworth Primary School and join the fun.
