Dear Messy Friends,
We’re going to be going on another Messy Adventure this month, exploring the Holy Habit of making disciples.
At the end of Matthew’s Gospel, appearing to the disciples, Jesus says:
““I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”
(Matthew 28: 18b-20, Good News Bible)
And it’s because the first disciples followed Jesus’ command that we are here learning about him and celebrating him today. How amazing is that! But it wasn’t only a commission for those first disciples, it was for us too. So how do we go about making disciples today, in such a different world?
Our next Messy Church is this Saturday, 11th November. We’re going to be exploring how we make disciples in this very Messy world of ours, looking at the transformations that we can make over even simple, small things. We’ll be experimenting with electricity (safely!), making some messy cola fountains, writing messages in toast and playing with slime (yuk!). We’ll then join together in the church, singing about how God can change our lives, before sharing a yummy lunch.
We can’t wait to see you there!
