Messy Church will be looking ahead to Easter. Sunday 26 is also Mothers' Day - so we'll have a couple of things that can be used as gifts for mum or other "important adult". 
The team could use some old CDs or DVDs for the crafts, and about 40 empty (clean) cans (after soup, beans) etc.
If you can bring some along (or collect some from the folks in your church), please let Joan Cape 674276 know.

The Edinburgh Easter Play - 15  April
The Edinburgh Easter Play will take place on Easter Saturday, April 15th 2017, at 2pm, in Princes Street Gardens West in the centre of Edinburgh. The performance is free and open to all. This year, for the first time since 2010, we will be staging a large-scale traditional Passion Play, but you can expect a few surprises - our take on the Easter story has a distinctly Scottish flavour.

The Edinburgh Easter Play is created by a team of community performers drawn from all walks of life, working with a professional director and stage manager, and lead by a professional actor, Duncan Rennie, playing Jesus. We hope to see you at Easter!
