Our Messy Church is always very popular, over 100 people on the register and families on a waiting list. The last few sessions were only attended by 20 or so people, where ususally we have 40-50. I decided (perhaps foolishly) that saving places for people who did not attend regularily was unfair to those on the waiting list. So for the September Messy Church I opened it to anyone who wanted to come. Disaster! We catered craft wise and food wise for 40-50 people. 74 came through the door.
