Messy Church – April 2023

Rhythms of Life

At our April Messy Church we have been thinking about Rhythms of Life and exploring some of the things we all experience – living, changing, growing, life in seasons, a rhythm of life and death and that this is the story that is central to our faith.

God created life and created us to live in community with him. There is an order, a pattern or rhythm to our life, just as the years are ordered by the months and seasons.

Death was never part of God’s plan for us, which is why it always feels so wrong, it is sad and separates us from those we love. But that was not the end. Jesus came to earth to show us how to live, to die on the cross and to defeat death, rising again and giving us the way to live with him again in new life and one day to redeem and renew the whole of his creation.

This is why Jesus said: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even if they die.  And whoever lives by believing in me will never die’ (John 11:25–26, NIRV).

We also were able to wish Happy Birthday to two of our helpers, Mike Judge and Minnie Kunz.

Our next Messy Church will be on Sunday 21st May at 3pm when we will be thinking about the Church’s birthday – Pentecost.
