Messy Church: There is a project that St Andrew’s Church, Fairlight runs every month for people of all ages. It’s called ‘Messy Church’ and it runs the first Wednesday of every month and takes place at Fairlight Village Hall from 3.30 until 5pm.

Messy Church is on the following dates:- April 1, May 6, June 3, and July 1. There will not be a Messy Church session during August but there will be a family trip where everyone is welcome. This will be advertised nearer the date.

There are fun activities like art and craft, games, drama, singing, storytelling, and then a meal together. These sessions are free and it’s an opportunity for people of all ages to come to know God but in an informal and enjoyable way.

Already children and their parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles attend but there is room for more.

These sessions are run by experienced volunteers from St Andrew’s Church and for more information, please contact Maggie Boulter, St Andrew’s Junior Church Coordinator, 01424 812104.
