Messy Church (May)

This month's theme was "Jesus heals a blind man". We learned how to write our names in the braille alphabet and played some games making use of our senses of touch and hearing rather than sight. As always we finished our time together with a tasty supper.

Thanks to all helpers and all who came along.

Messy Church (Apr)

It was great to see so many people of all ages at our Easter Messy Church. We enjoyed the warm Spring day as we strolled through the village looking for clues which told the Easter story. Our stroll included some egg-rolling in the park. We then headed back to the church for a great wee film and the usual fun songs with actions. Mission: Impossible Grace was said before our tasty shared supper. Thanks to all who helped or came along.

Messy Church (Mar)

This month's theme was "A meal with Jesus". It was great to see so many of you and as always we all had fun making, shaking, rolling and splashing. We shared communion with bread and ‘wine’, doing as Jesus had asked his disciples to do to remember him. As always we finished our time together with supper.

Thanks to all helpers and all who came along.

Messy Church (Feb)

This month's theme was "David and Goliath". It was great to see so many of you ranging from little ones just a few months old to a couple of visitors in their late 80s (they enjoyed themselves so much they asked if they could come again!) We had lots of crafts and games and an excellent supper of home-made macaroni cheese.

Thanks to all helpers and all who came along.

Toilet Twinning (Sep)

Our Toilet Twinning fundraiser raised a total of £650! A huge thankyou to everyone who saved up 20ps or donated items for our Coffee Morning. For those who came along on the day and others who helped in the kitchen, serving drinks and manning stalls, clearing up etc. you were all amazing. The surplus toiletries were passed on to the local Aberdeenshire North Food Bank and the extra books went to the Fly Cup charity. Both groups were delighted to receive these items.

Floral Fun (Jun)

Our latest crafty, chatty venture had a floral theme. The invitation was to bring along some flowers and a suitable container and see how simple it is to make an attractive floral arrangement. Help and advice were on hand from some experienced flower arrangers plus some other craft activities to try with a floral theme. Refreshments and fine pieces ensured that everyone had enough energy for the evening. Information was given about Toilet Twinning and our support for our Missionary Partners in Nkhoma Hospital through knitting and the £30 raised by the evening will go towards the cost of sending the knitting out to Malawi.
