Messy Church Nerang first birthday
We have just celebrated the first birthday of our Messy Church at the Living Rivers Uniting Church, Nerang. After hearing Lucy speak at Ignite (the Children's Ministry Conference in Queensland) we planned a bunch of really special activities including the some of the ideas we saw at Ignite.
The favourite was the blocks of wood with real nails and wool wrapped around the nails so everyone could take home their own cross to remind them of the suffering of Christ on the cross and the opportunity given through the resurrection for new beginnings. It was our biggest Messy Church yet with 25 children and 19 adults.
