Dear friends,

We have just about come to the end of the school year, and with that in mind the Messy Church Team have decided not to have Messy Church meetings during July and August this year. We have made this decision reluctantly, because we know that you are not all away on the dates that we normally meet, but we know that we will have only a few team members available on those dates, and we do not want to be unable to share all the usual activities etc with you because of lack of manpower.

We will start up again in September, and go right through until December. The dates and themes for the meetings are as follows:

28th September: Harvest - Jesus the True Vine

25th October:  The Lord’s Prayer
29th November: The Waiting Game – Advent

10th December:  A Special Messy Christmas Celebration during the Christmas Tree Festival.

We will look forward to seeing you all in September and hearing about how you have enjoyed the summer.  Thank you all so much for your help and support over the past twelve months.  Your help with preparing and cooking food to share has been really appreciated.

Please come and see our scarecrow during the Boston Spa Festival (14th,15th,16th July) on the Scarecrow Trail, and enjoy some refreshments here on the Saturday.  We are holding a Pet Service at 3pm on the 15th July, so bring your pet or a photo and enjoy the fun.
Look out to for the information about the ‘Ship Shapes Holiday Club at St Mary’s, Sue will be helping so look out for her there.

Every Saturday morning, we have a "Drop In " coffee morning which starts at 10 am, we serve Bacon Butties, hot drinks and cake.  Why not drop in one Saturday and say hello

For more information about activities, services and where they are taking place please see the website

Sunday Morning Services start at 10:30am and, these are more traditional types of service.

Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, at 6:00pm, we have services that are quiet and contemplative; a time to worship in a different way using music, words, silence, prayer, film and other media to help us explore faith and spirituality. The service on the 1st Sunday includes Holy Communion

 If you would like information about this, or want to know more about any of the other activities that take place throughout the week, please speak to me, or one of the other helpers.

Thank you
The Messy Church Team
