You are cordially invited to Messy Fiesta: a day to experience and learn about Messy Church! This workshop will be held at Church of the Ascension, 1476 Sparks St., Sudbury ON P3A 2E1 on Saturday, June 9, 2012 from 10 am – 2:30 pm
Are you looking for a way to reach families who are not in our churches on Sundays? Messy Church (MC) aims to create the opportunity for adults and children to enjoy expressing their creativity, to gather together for a meal, to experience worship and to have fun within a church context. You will have an opportunity to experience what Messy Church can offer your church. The session will allow you to experience a Messy Church, to brainstorm around your own Messy Church, to gather resources, and to explore the history of this innovative way of being church in a changing world. You will take away knowledge, skills and materials to help you get started. For participants who have already started a Messy Church, we will share ideas and network, facilitated by a seasoned MC practitioner. Presenters: The Rev. Nancy Rowe (MC Practitioner) and Sue & Andy Kalbfleisch (MC Regional Coordinators).
