Messy St Thomas’s – again!Published on 12th June, 2017
On Saturday, 10th June, St Thomas’s Church became Messy again as their Church Hall became the venue for a ‘Messy Church’ afternoon themed on the Ascension of Jesus and His ‘Great Commission’ –
‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
( St Matthew 28:16-20: New International Version )
Messy children and grown-ups who attended
wrote Bible verses on slices of bread which was then toasted and consumed; made prayer spirals; transformed plastic bottles into rockets which were propelled into the Birchgrove skies;
and got their hands splendidly messy as they dipped them into
poster paint and made a hand-print poster entitled:
‘Hands up for Jesus’.
