Save the date! Our next Messy Church takes place on Sunday, 8 September, 4-6pm in Humbie Village Hall.
This time, we'll have visitors from Fostering Compassion, an East Lothian charity that supports children in care and helps rescue animals. We'll also have local pets - possibly a dog or two, a kitten, a budgie, and perhaps even ferrets and a pony - and a vet visiting. Please contact us if you'd like more information. The afternoon will have a slightly different format, but children of all ages will be able to join in with the activities, and we'll have a song and prayer, and supper together, as usual.
All children are very welcome, and must be accompanied by an adult.
Cabin crew please take your seats for take off!
We have had a very exciting few days at Holiday Club flying to three wonderfully exotic countries – Jamaica, Italy and South Korea. Every morning we have boarded our plane (mercifully not affected by strikes and power cuts) to take us to our new destination, singing songs along the way to keep our rather dozy pilot awake. We have learnt a little bit about each country as we visit it and Anikó has been helping us engage with the themes of love, hope and peace within these countries. With the help of Jenny’s brilliance we have made some beautiful crafts including love clouds, hope/love/peace bracelets, hanging baskets, a fantastic flame filled burning bush, and doves of peace. Margo’s magnificent meals have kept us all going as we listened to Cressida tell us stories about Moses in relation to our themes. We also have managed to get outside to play and dance around the church despite the tempestuous weather! We landed safely back in Scotland after three packed filled days – and are much looking forward to new adventures next year!
