Brockton gets messy!

Brockton Primary School has added to its busy schedule with a new regular event – Messy Church. This monthly all-age event held in the school hall demonstrates a new approach to church for families and the community based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. At November’s Messy Church, participants reflected upon peace and remembrance while making bird feeders, crispy cakes, prayer poppies and sun-catchers.

Extended schools coordinator Kate Castle said, “The peace doves looked beautiful – there was a whole flock by the end! As children played in the sand and made footprints along our pretend beach, we took the opportunity to pause, think and remember. Celebration time brings food and time to chat; bagels, oranges and crispy cakes were all well received. A prayer and a song rounded off the session and families made their way home, loaded up with the beautiful crafts. We’re already looking forward to the next one on Sunday 7 January!”
