Matlock Fiesta

Published 18th May 2010 by lucy moore

Jane Butcher (Regional Coordinator in the Midlands) and Chris Rees (Regional Coordinator South Yorkshire), together with our dear friend Helen Proudfoot (Children’s Adviser in Derby Diocese) had a great time on Saturday. Jane writes:
‘The beautiful town of Matlock in Derbyshire was the location for the first steps and next steps Messy Fiesta.
We were joined by twelve people which included one man all keen either to learn about starting a Messy Church or how to develop an existing one.
Over the course of the day we had some good discussions about the practical details, some theological thoughts and the ever emerging ‘discipleship’ conversations.
Some shared encouraging stories about how social gatherings have also come out of Messy Churches from bowling to cookery evenings and a chance to talk about general daily life.
One of the benefits of having those new to all this as well as those more experienced was the opportunity for people to share what they have learnt along the way with those just beginning their journeys along the exciting path of Messy Church.’
