Fresh ideas for building a Christ-centred community

Easter in Len Valley Benefice

Helen Venn, Len Valley Benefice Messy Church - 11 Apr 2013

This year for Easter we put on a Messy Treasure Hunt in the churchyard.  Families searched for 6 characters from the Easter story who were in costume and hiding in the churchyard.  They each had a story to tell and either gave the children an object related to their story or told them where to go to find the object.  Children came inside with their 'treasures'.

and were able to weave a Mexican cross and paint a pebble.  Inside we had a 'cafe' and also a card making activity.  Each of the characters were interviewed in the celebration so the story was heard twice.  Everyone who had completed their treasure hunt card recieved a creme egg to take home at the end.  All our resources are available to share if wished.
