The weather was near perfect for the New Year’s Day walk at Topsham. The walk included a short visit to Bowling Green Marsh RSPB bird-hide where plenty of wading birds and wildfowl could be seen. We returned beside the River Exe Estuary via the Goat’s Walk and this was followed by a welcome stop for tea/coffee.
Decorating the hall Our hall is regularly used by a number of individuals and organisations from the village and surrounding area. The Property Team recently met and approved for the hall and entrance area to be decorated. It is now several years since it was last done. A new screen is also planned to be installed in the hall. Decorating has been arranged for the week commencing 8th April 2019. This is happening during the school Easter holidays in order to try and minimise disruption to users. Painting etc. should be completed before the Good Friday and Easter Day services. The hall floor is also due to be professionally cleaned and oiled this year. Once the decorating is completed arrangements are going to be made for this work to be carried out, probably in May
The theme for our second Exminster Messy Church was the Creation story. The session was enjoyed by children and adults. Lots of fun was had making amazing insects and animals through junk modelling to illustrate the creation story. We even had a very yummy Garden of Eden created with sweets! A great temptation to eat the sweets was avoided and instead a lovely picture was made.
Our next session is on Sunday 24 February. We hope even more people will come and enjoy sharing time with us.
We were pleased to see a good number of people at our meeting on Sunday 13th January. Please tell your neighbours and friends about Messy Church. We would like any tissue paper you might have to spare for the next sessions and orange or gold tissue paper plus cotton reels and yogurt pots for our March session when we will be making a model chalice. We also need your prayers please.
