Kingsfold Methodist Church

Sunday School - Messy
Anniversary 2017

Sunday 14th May was the date that Sunday School (61 years, I think!) and Messy Church (8 years) took over the morning service to celebrate their joint birthdays.

Rev Katharine and the Messy Team led the worship which was typically a little different than Kingsfolds normal services!

Our theme was Transformation - illustrated by Karen telling of the story 'The very hungry caterpillar'.  The story took us through the life cycle of a particular little caterpillar who had an extremely voracious appetite for food - any kind of food - he wasn't fussy!  By the time we reached the end of the book we'd been through a long list of everything he'd eaten before he had a well earned rest and emerged as a very beautiful Butterfly!  Transformed!

Katharine then showed us some beautiful pictures of different artists impressions of how they thought Jesus looked during his transformation which happened after his resurrection and leading up to his ascension to be with his Father in Heaven.  She also explained how Jesus can and still does transform peoples lives - all we have to do is trust in him and follow him and allow him to do the rest.

Our craft time followed as we continued the transformation theme.  There were Butterfly and Cross Suncatchers which with the help of glass pens were transformed from colourless pieces of plastic to vibrant, colourful and attractive hangers.  We also had Butterfly and Cross shaped scratch art which were also transformed from plain black shapes to a kaleidoscope of eye catching colours.

We used CD music and sang a selection of upbeat hymns and songs - some with actions!  The morning finished with cakes and drinks giving everyone time to chat together at the end of a wonderful morning of worship together.  Thank you to everyone who came along to support the children and youth of Kingsfold - also thanks to all the Messy Team, including our lovely kitchen helpers, for the work that they do each and every month - you are all truly appreciated!
