This week we had our first Messy Church of the year the theme of which was “God is Love”. The kids got involved in all sorts of crafts and activities that celebrated this theme including decorating heart shaped cookies, making fortune pickers and Valentine cards. After a short service in the church we shared in a communal supper of chili, jacket potatoes and pasta.
This Sunday, we learn all about the Sermon on the Mount and the Beeatitudes…

This week we had a talk about Cystic Fibrosis from Sam who works in Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. There is a 1 in 4 chance that a child will get Cystic Fibrosis if both their parents have the Cystic Fibrosis gene. The symptoms for the condition are that the lungs have mucus that is really thick and bacteria gets in and they have to take pills. Cystic Fibrosis is a very rare condition but more people than usual have it in Ireland
Today the younger kids did scenes from the baptism of Jesus as part of their arts and crafts in JAM club
