Our next Messy Church will be at 4pm on Sunday 14th November where we will have Remembrance as our Theme. It will be in St Peter’s School Hall. We will be making poppies to ‘plant’ in our gardens, a poppy collage and a bookmark to help us remember a loved relative or pet who has died. We’ll also have a memory game to play.
