A relatively new venture by the Church is the Messy Church which is aimed at bringing children and adults together in a fun-filled Christian community outside Sunday worship. It for all ages and an adult must bring a child or vice versa. Each meeting is themed, has a creative messy activity, sing-song and ends with a shared meal. Meetings take place at Udimore Community Hall on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 4.00 pm. The next date is Tuesday, April 3, and will be about Easter. Further details can be obtained from Jo on 01424-882652 or Verity on 01424-883242.
