There really can’t be a more aptly named place for a Muddy Church celebration than Muckamore!
On Sunday October 17, St Jude’s Parish organised a special family service and Muddy Church event to celebrate the return of the parish Sunday School, and lots of families donned their wellies to join in.
The family service focused on creation, and there was no shortage of fun, with the children acting out the story of creation, action songs and a creation-themed team quiz which encouraged lots of healthy competition!
After the service, everyone enjoyed the ice cream van and then made their way into the wooded playground area beside St Jude’s – a perfect location for Muddy Church.
Families followed a trail, taking time to ask questions and wonder about God’s creation. The children hunted for pieces of a memory verse and then took part in canvas crafts and making ‘leaf hedgehogs.’
Connor Children’s Ministry Development Officer Victoria Jackson said: “A huge well done to all of the leaders who put the event together, especially to Carol and Andrew who worked so hard to plan and prepare the day!
“It was brilliant to see the church full of families and the children catching up with the Sunday School friends.”
