Welcome to Messy Church at home!

Welcome to Messy Church at Home for October. Next month we’re hoping to be back in the church building. It will be great to see you! 

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our latest Messy Church at Home. This month we’re looking at bread, with two slices of history from the Bible to make us think, sandwiched between some songs.

Like it or loaf it, we're bready to go with a whole meal of songs and activities!

Here's another old favourite: A-B-C-D-E-F-G

Here's today's story, which quite literally covers a lot of ground!

Good manna's always on the menu: a few thoughts

Activity: making flat bread

Flat Bread

If you are a child, please ask an adult to supervise you. Don’t forget to wash your hands


125g self-raising flour with a pinch of salt (provided) 1 ½ tbsp olive, vegetable or sunflower oil (not provided) Approximately 75ml of water (not provided)

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour oil and water with a wooden spoon. Use your hands to bring the mix together into a rough, sticky, dough
  2. Tip the dough onto a floured surface and knead for one minute until smooth. Divide into three balls
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Brush the tops of each circle with oil.
  4. Fry for 3-4 minutes on both sides until golden and cooked through
  5. Eat on their own or serve with soup, chilli or bolognaise

If you like, add some herbs such as oregano to the flour before mixing for extra flavour. You could even add cheese and create cheesy flatbreads.

Activity: Growing cress

Growing cress

This month’s Messy Church is all about harvest. You have everything you need in your pack to grow and harvest your very own crop of cress

  1. Eat the jelly and wash the pot
  2. Place the cotton wool in the bottom of the now empty jelly pot.
  3. Add a drop of water; enough to soak the cotton wool but not too much so the cotton wool disintegrates
  4. Sprinkle a few cress seeds on the cotton wool.
  5. Watch them grow and when the cress is strong and green (see picture) cut the plants from their root, wash, and add to sandwiches or salads.

And finally...
