|MessyChurch - Sunday 24 September|
St Mungo's Hall (and garden if the weather is fine) 4 to 6pm
Our theme is "John the Baptist - pointing to Jesus" - why not come along and find out what that's all about?
Church is supported by people from a variety of Penicuik churches, and
seeks to offer a very low key way of learning something about the
Bible. It's for family groups of all sorts - children with one or more
parents, grandparents, aunties/uncles, carers: the only rule is that
adults must bring a primary school aged child, children must bring at
least one responsible adult!
Join us for a time of messy crafts and
other activities, as we think about what it means to share God's love.
Finishing with hot dinner. Further information from: Joan Cape 674276

identity of Jesus. We
hear how Jesus describes to Peter that he is the Messiah, but then
tells Peter not to tell anyone. This confuses Peter. Hear how this
story unfolds. Full Story
