Muddy Church activities for children - and parents - this Lent

Dear Friends

It seems such a long time since we have met face to face, but it is good to keep in contact and we have delighted in receiving photos from you of things you are doing.

We are now in the season of Lent as we journey toward Easter and traditionally we would give up things, however with all that is going on I thought it would be nice to do some things instead – some fun, some exploring, some abut stillness, a time to take care of yourself.

Each sheet has a number of challenges, to enjoy the things around us as we connect with God. Simple ideas which can be done whenever you want, it doesn't have to be one a day. But it is about spending purposeful and intentional moments and taking time to listen to what God may be whispering.

There are two sheets:

Lent resource – which is about Muddy Church, I thought the youngsters would enjoy this (and maybe the adults!)

Lent challenge – which I think the adults would resonate with (and maybe the youngsters)

If you are able to take photos of doing any of these things do sent them through to me and I will share them with the Messy Church team

I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the signs of spring that are all around us

God bless
