Messy Cathedral – fun for all the family...
On Monday 30 March St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds will be messy! From 10 am to 12 noon the Cathedral will host a ‘Messy Cathedral’ event. ‘Messy Church’ is a national initiative which encourages families to explore Biblical themes together through crafts, worship and food. This is the first time that a Messy Cathedral event will have been held in Suffolk (though other cathedrals have gone before – including St Paul’s and Ely Cathedral).
Ten activities will be on offer around the Cathedral on the theme of Holy Week. There will be crowns to make, crosses to decorate, biscuits to ice and palm branches to wave. Later in the morning everyone will join together for a time of worship in the Nave of the Cathedral. Then Messy Cathedral ends with the sharing of food together. A team of helpers will be on hand throughout the morning. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
‘We are very excited about this new venture,’ comments Reverend Carl Melville, Cathedral curate and who is the organiser of this event. ‘Messy churches are proving to be a popular way for families to have fun together, whilst growing in their knowledge of the Christian faith.’
There is no charge for attending this event. For further information please see www.stedscathedral.co.uk or phone 01284 748720.
