Ahoy there! The Messy Church Team are getting shipshape this week, ready to transform St Michael’s into our very own Caribbean island! It’s all aboard as the team are busy gathering materials for Messy Church on 17 April - this month's theme is an action packed adventure based on the film Pirates of the Caribbean.
A lot of work goes into the preparation for Messy Church – huge amounts of cutting out, glueing and sticking will be happening, expertly carried out by our volunteer helpers.
All these bits of materials and tin foil will be transformed in our craft session - into treasure chests, captains’ hooks and pirate hats. There’s also a surprise in store where you can create your own concoctions in our Treasure Island Cupcake and Cocktail Bar!
Captain Jack Sparrow said: “Not all treasure is gold and silver, mate”. The Pirates of the Caribbean film will help us to explore issues of sacrifice, faith and love and how Jesus is our greatest treasure.
Come along and join us on our Caribbean island for pirate adventures and a yummy tea on Friday 17 April 2015 at 3.30 pm. Feel free to dress up!
