Messy Fiesta in Bedford

Published 17th June 2008 by lucy moore

We were delighted to welcome some 50 delegates to the Bedford Messy Fiesta on Saturday, about 15 of whom had already started some form of Messy Church, with the rest thinking about it. This time Martyn accompanied me and worked valiantly all day, as did the Children’s Adviser Ruth Pyke, for which I am very grateful.
Together we welcomed the guests, gave them a lively hands-on day of thought-provoking discussion and presentation, craft and food in true Messy Church tradition. It was lovely to have Deborah and Duke Vipperman from Toronto with us for the day – most of the other people were slightly more local. Some interesting questions, as there always are, about messy theology and about who could do a PhD in such a glorious subject, and about the validity of a once-a-month church ‘experience’. And I think we managed to keep the paint off the strawberries.
