THERE will be mixed emotions at Droitwich’s Messy Church which takes place between 10am and midday on Saturday, September 16, at St Andrews Church.
The event will be celebrating its second birthday but it will also be Rev Bev Jameson’s last Messy Church before she leaves to become the Rector of St Mary the Virgin in Lymm, Cheshire.
It will be a birthday and farewell party all rolled into one where participants will be able to make birthday badges, funny face cupcakes, ice cream magnets, streamers, and lots more. There will be songs a short talk, and a free lunch of sandwiches and cake.
Messy Church is free and open to children of all ages accompanied by an adult.
Rev Bev Jameson, Team Vicar Droitwich Spa, Salwarpe and Hindlip with Martin Hussingtree Dean of Women’s Ministry Diocese of Worcester said “Messy Church will always be remembered as one of my happiest times in the parish with all the children families and wonderfully supportive helpers.
“We now have an average 50 to 70 children coming every month.
“Together with mums dads and other adults over 150 people fill St Andrews Church.
“It is a great way to meet one another form friendships, have a great time making crafts and hear about Jesus. ”
She added the volunteers who helped with Messy Church loved it as much as the families did and would ensure the regular sessions will continue after she had left.
“Come along and join us for a really brilliant time and I wish Messy Church every success in the future.”
The Parish Centre Cafe will also be closed to the public that day.
