How can it be a month since we last spoke about Messy Church?! We hope you can join us. This month our Messy Church at Home preparation pack includes some activities that embrace the opportunity to spend more time outside at our leisure and also the need to reflect on the past few months in community without all being all face to face. Remember to choose your activities in advance if at all possible. We have also taken on board some feedback so would like to note the following three things.
1. We’ve moved to a shorter and earlier time 4pm-5:15pm on the 19th June 2020 to reduce screen time and help family bedtime routines. You may wish to even join with one other family to do some activities outside at a physical distance: before, during, or after our virtual gathered time. Awesome!
2. Pita pizzas have been our favourite tea so far at Messy Church and so we have suggested this as our food craft this month– if you would like a pizza making kit dropped off to make and enjoy, please let me know by Wednesday 17th lunchtime so the shopping and delivery can be done in time.
3. Permission forms-– the Church of Scotland has reiterated that we really do need permission forms for our families engaging online with us. the form takes minutes to fill in and at the very least it will mean that I won’t ask you for your address or phone number every time I’ve neglected to save it to my phone… for this you will save far more than 5 minutes of your lives :)! https://form.jotform.com/201094255335046
As always, we are looking forward to seeing some of you virtually next week. Do let me know if you are joining in if you haven’t already. Feel free to use the materials even if you aren’t able to join us in virtual person!
