This time round we are doing something a little different for our final Messy Church of the year. As you know, Leaton Church is celebrating its 160th birthday with a Christmas Tree Festival, and we’re organising a Messy Forest Trail to be part of the festivities.
We really hope to see you there- the plan is as follows:
Saturday, 7th December, 8.30am- to finish at the church around 10am.
Meet and park at Leaton Forest (where you buy the Christmas Trees from).
We will have a walk around the forest, stopping at various points to hear some advent stories, worship together and reflect on Christmas. There will be about 45 minutes of actual walking, on all sorts of terrain- some mud, some bumpy bits…. please wear wellies and waterproofs! As ever, caregivers are responsible for children at all times.
After our walk, we will return to our cars, change into less muddy shoes and then drive across the road to Leaton Church, where there will be hot chocolate and refreshments! Here you will be able to enjoy the Christmas Tree Festival and admire the many trees.
