Play and Praise 26th November 2023

Families Welcome to our Messy Church Prayer.

Love trust and talk to God.  He is a miracle He protects and supports us. Walk with God and you will have more confidence.  He is big and delivers on promises.  I’m living life to the full with him, He is the best and you can lean on him.  Remember to never miss an opportunity to tell everyone about God.  Share your story with God.  He is hope, He is truth, He is caring, He makes me happy.  I am so proud I made the right decisions with God I’m holding onto hope that He will be forever in our hearts. AMEN

Messy Church 12th November – A fun time was had by all with some great work writing this wonderful prayer and creating some excellant craft and buildings in lego for our cities!
