Mothers wanting a bit of help with youngsters enjoying two messy hours should pop along to Holy Trinity Church on Buxton Road, Whaley Bridge on Sunday 10 February 2013 from 3.30-5.30pm.
This is the latest “Messy Church”: a programme which aims to get people who don’t attend church regularly to attend an informal event.
Churchwarden Marion Lacey, who is co-ordinating a team of volunteers, said: “We have chosen a Sunday afternoon, because working mums would find it difficult at any other time.”
Dozens of children attended the first Messy Church creating their own Olympic torches in the build-up to the London Games, while mums and dads enjoyed a relaxed coffee and chat with friends.
The theme for the latest Messy Church is ‘What a Wonderful World’. Marion said: “It’s about people, the environment, everything. There’s craftwork and singing, too. Our new priest, the Rev Margaret Jones, will conduct a storytime session. We’ve got hot dogs and chips for the children, with cakes and sandwiches and tea or coffee for the mums and dads. It will be a jolly good day.”
Parents are asked to pay £2 for a family, but there’s an option to give more if they wish to cover the costs
