June 2022 Messy Church: All About Fishing and Jesus’ mission for his friends
At Messy Church we looked at the story of Jesus calling the disciples. The most popular activity (with the children and adults!) was building boats from old cardboard boxes. There were other crafts including macrame nets, painting fish scales with celery, dusting for fingerprints and making an edible fishing line. The activities helped us to think about what it means to follow Jesus and how we tell other people about him. We listened to the story and thought about how Jesus gave the disciples the job of fishing for people, but not with a fishing rod! We finished the session with fish finger wraps for dinner as we do like it when the food is on point with the theme!
