St Mark’s messy for Christmas

ST MARK'S Anglican Church is inviting locals to join in some messy Christmas fun at Messy Church this Sunday.

Heather Dearden is one of the key organisers behind Messy Church, an event well supported by other churches in the Rose City.

"Messy Church is offering a different form of church," she said.

"It's about trying to reconnect people who don't feel comfortable with formal services, this is an activity that involves the whole family."

Mrs Dearden said the Messy Church format would involve spending about an hour on Christmas-themed crafting, a short message and a meal - all free of charge.

"We'll be doing Christmas-based crafts, like making a paddle pop nativity scene and presents or decorations," she said.

"Our main prayer activity is we've got a Christmas tree and everyone will have a Christmas bauble which they can write a prayer on.

"It can be anything they like and that's open for the whole of Warwick and will be displayed right through the season as our community's prayers."

Messy Christmas is on Sunday from 4-6pm.

Friends of St Mark's will also host its Christmas stall on the day.

For more information, phone the parish Office on 4661 7223 or Heather on 0417 609 745.
