Messy Church

Rosemary (J) writes:

“At our July meeting re Messy Church, after much deliberation (and cake) our small team decided to try starting our first group in October to alternate with Marazion.

We are looking for possible help with any of the following basic items….

Crayons, pencils, coloured pencils, felt tip pens, children’s Bible story or      friendship/kindness themed books in good condition, paper, coloured card and any children’s craft related materials.   Any baby and toddler toys in good condition would also be helpful.

Please pass any items to Rev Paul, Rosemary J, Lousie or Jo.           Many, many thanks.”
