Another messy blog

Published 2nd November 2012 by lucy moore

Thanks, Jo Birkby from Brookwood for this link to her new blog. And yes, we’re planning on making our own Messy blog and other bits of the website much more interactive when the new version pops up in all its glory in early 2013. Jo writes:
Last Saturday we celebrated our 4th Birthday at Messy Church in St Saviour’s, Brookwood. We had a wonderful time and it was great to see families there who have been with us since the very beginning, still thoroughly enjoying themselves! We’re continuing to welcome new families month by month and we generally have about 80 people in total. God has so blessed us with this ministry in our church and we wanted to share new sessions we’ve tried and tested with other Messy Churches via our new blogspot… It’s early days as you can see, this being our first blog, and I’m sure there are others out there who do a similar thing. If it would help, perhaps you could create a spot on the Messy Church website where you could add blog links so we can all share our experiences, what worked, what didn’t…
With every blessing

Arriving on time, the school hall was packed like I’ve never seen before, with students dressed in a colourful array of traditional dress from over 18 countries.

At the start of a New Year, it’s good practice to pause for a moment and reflect on the year that’s past, giving thanks to God for both the opportunities and challenges. Noticing where we see God at work in our ministry serves as a good reminder of God’s faithfulness in all we do, as we prayerfully ask the questions: What went well? Even better if? Where is God at work?
