Messy church fun at Kilmington


Youngsters make light work of building electrical circuits

GETTING messy was the fun thing to do for youngsters at Kilmington last week.

Around 100 children took part in an evening of painting and handicrafts in the village hall.

It was the latest monthly Messy Church evening, organised by Kilmington Baptist Church with help from St Giles.

Youngsters painted pictures and made lighthouses and electrical circuits with batteries and bulbs.

Later they transformed the hall into a disco setting, with flashing lights, before the Vicar Reverend Alastair McCollum gave a short talk.

Messy Church – on the second Wednesday of the month – is a free two-hour session open to children of all ages, accompanied by their parents or carers.

The sessions involve crafts, singing, prayers and hot cooked meal based around a bible story with some messy fun for the children to take part in.
