Organized jointly by members of the Methodist Churches in Mossley and Hurst and supported by a Holiday Activity Grant from T3SC.

Fifty children attended the ‘Pyramid Rock’ holiday club at Mossley Methodist Church from 15th to 19th August 2011.

All of the children were given a bright yellow T-shirt with the ‘Pyramid Rock’ logo - and lots of opportunities to have fun through games, craft, drama and music as well as plenty of activities with an Egyptian theme.

Over eighty people of all ages attended the 
‘Messy Church Christingle’ 
on Thursday 23rd December 2010.
Read what went on below!

Those who came were able to make their own Christingles and discover the meaning of each of the symbols. In addition a range of other creative activities were available including: working together to make a huge Christingle; colouring acetates in the design of stained glass windows; painting marbles and rolling them over heart shaped collage pictures; and playing a Christmas journey board game.  

Everyone then made their way into the Worship area to learn some new Christingle songs. It was a special moment when all of the Christingles were lit and the lights were dimmed as we joined together to ‘Sing Christingle, Sing Christingle, Sing Christingle, it’s the light of Christ’ (to the tune of ‘Sing Hosannna’).


The afternoon was rounded off by sharing a tea of jacket potatoes with cheese or beans and hot dogs, followed by jelly and ice cream.


A further Messy Church was held on Wednesday 26th January, 3:30pm – 5:30pm when the theme was ‘A New Start’ based on the story of Noah’s Ark. Below are some photos from that afternoon.
