Messy Church

Fresh ideas for building a Christ-centred community

Wise & Foolish builders

- 05 Sep 2011

Our most recent Messy Church event at Dapto Uniting (NSW, Australia) focused on the Parable of the Wise & Foolish Builders.

Praise God - we more than doubled our numbers this time!

Upon arrival, our families were greeted by witches hats, hazard tape, hard hats and fluoro vests galore!

Everyone had a great time with our "construction themed" indoor/outdoor activities, including: gingerbread houses, wood work, digging for buried treasure, bubble blowing, Jenga, building walls with cardboard boxes, playdough, wheel printing, sand art, DIY gummy lollies, blocks, dress-ups, pet rocks and dirt cakes!

We then went into the church to watch a video, sing some songs, have a dance and participate in an interactive storytelling of the Wise & Foolish Builders tale.

To finish we all tucked into a delicious hamburger dinner - we had so many families in attendance that we only just had enough food! :)
