Familes from Messy Church opened their homes to Mary and Joseph during Advent, as part of the Latin American tradition "La fiesta de las Posadas". Figures of Mary and Joseph, accompanied by a guardian angel, were passed from family to family until returning to take their place in the nativity scene at the Crib Service on Christmas Eve. A "posada" pack went with the figures, encouraging host families to think about "the real reason for the season" while enjoying books, puzzles, craft activities and baking.
Messy Church is proving a towering success!

In June 2013 we hosted an event in support of The Big Lunch. This is a one-day celebration backed by the Eden Project, to get friends and neighbours together to enjoy street party-style food and fun. The event included the creation of a community mural marking the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation. Pictured adding some artistic touches is three-year-old Elizabeth.
