Let’s Learn Together
An invitation to explore some Christian themes on 3rd Sunday evenings of the month. Please note there will not be a meeting on 17th February, so the next meeting will be in March. 4:30 – 6:00pm , at St Peter’s Place, the church hall adjacent to St Peter and St Mary’s Church, Fishbourne . There will be an interval for tea and coffee midway. We hope these evenings will be interactive and informative. Please invite your friends. All are very welcome.
Messy Church will meet on Sunday 10th February, 16.30 – 18.00 in St Peter’s Place – Messy Church is for families throughout Fishbourne and the surrounding area who would like to join us for fun activities, crafts, music, praise and a meal. Socialise, relax and learn more about Jesus in a fun way. The theme for February will be “Noah’s Ark” so just turn up and join in.
All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult and there is no charge. For more information speak to Moira or one of the Messy Church team, Marion, Jennie Louisa or Caroline on 07787943027
A plea from Sue for Messy Church in February – If you have any kitchen roll/foil/greaseproof paper centres etc. could you please let me have them, or leave them in Church for me as I’m hoping to make ‘rain sticks’. Thanks so much. Sue Harrison 7874983
