Messy Church – Sunday 12 February 2017

Come along to Messy Church at St Thomas’s on Sunday 12th February between 2:30-5:00pm.

What is Messy Church?
It is for the whole family, together, not just children. We welcome children of all ages (but they must be accompanied by an adult).

Messy Church is a church, not a club. We share a meal together. Messy Church offers you fun, friendship, hot food and a chance to find out more about Jesus.

There is something for everyone (even the grown ups!).
