New: Knox Church introduces Messy Church for young families

There is something new that is happening at Knox Church in Vankleek Hill. It’s called “Messy Church.”

Messy Church originated in England with the Church of England but is now found in most countries around the world.  Messy Church is a time of fun, learning and a meal fellowship that focuses on young families, both parents and children.

On Wednesday, February 19, at 4:30 p.m. Knox is kicking off a Messy Church celebration. The plan is to hold a Messy Church event on the third Wednesday of every month.  On Wednesday, the doors open at 4:30 p.m. with activities beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing until 5:45.  At that time there will be a Bible story and music until 6 p.m. and then a meal at 6 p.m. sharp.  Families will be out the door by 6:45 p.m. so they can carry on with their day.

On Wednesday, February 19, the theme is “God’s Creation,” where activities, worship and the meal will all tie in with the theme.

“We hope to reach people who aren’t currently involved in a faith family for whom Wednesday late afternoon works better than Sunday morning,” said the Reverend James Douglas.
