Messy Church at Easter 2020
Easter is a wonderful way to bring together primary aged children, their families and adults to explore church in a fun and creative way. We normally use song, craft, story telling and play, but as we can’t be together, here are our ideas for a Virtual Messy Church at Easter– things to make, things to bake, stories to tell and sheets to colour. It would be wonderful if you could join the St Peter & St Paul Facebook community and share pictures of some of your Easter creations https://www.facebook.com/SaintsPeterPaulBotley/ or search for @SaintsPeterPaulBotley Please do share this with other families who may like to do some activities around the Easter Story.

A Messy Church Prayer for Easter
God of all life and power
your love proved stronger than hate and evil,
stronger than death itself.
May the life of the risen Jesus live in us today and for ever.
