Easter Messy Church at Maidstone 2017

Families had a great morning exploring ‘The Easter Story’ (YouTube animation) from Palm Sunday to Easter morning through worship; fun activities and crafts; and fellowship over a snack lunch (baked potatoes included to represent the rolled-away stone).   Paper palm leaves and peg donkeys were made to represent Palm Sunday.

To represent the Last Supper decoupages of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet (as shown) and paper disciples arranged around a paper table were made.

Scratching designs on black crosses was a reminder of Good Friday.   Egg crafts symbolised Easter Sunday – polystyrene eggs pinned with sequins; cakes iced and then decorated with eggs; and hard-boiled eggs decorated ready for the egg-rolling competition (symbolising the rolling away of the stone to open up the tomb).  A tip, if ever you enter an egg-rolling competition:  roll the egg!   If the egg bounces, it breaks and does not go so far!

Some of the crafts (washing disciples’ feet, scratched crosses and sequinned polystyrene eggs) were then hung on the Easter Tree (as shown) – a contorted hazel tree just coming into leaf.  The message at the base of the tree reads:

This Easter Tree is hung with symbols that remind us of the Easter Story. Even the twisted branches of the tree remind us of the pain Jesus suffered for us.

Both families and helpers enjoyed their time sharing together in the message of God’s wonderful love so powerfully shown by the story of Easter.

Community Services

The Salvation  Army's practical hands-on work is renowed. It has never been enough just to preach; the message of God's love is also demonstrated through its work particulary with marginalised and vulnerable people.

In corps and centres across the territory, people of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to discover how much he loves them and the possibilites he has for their lives.
