We had another fun time with Messy Church in Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s recently. This time it was Messy Easter, with our Bible story about Jesus’ death and resurrection. Our Easter crafts were great fun, and we have a fabulous Easter card to put in the church for our Easter services. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to (click on one and you should get a slideshow you can click through).
We had another fun time with Messy Church in Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s recently. This time it was Messy Weather, with our Bible story about Noah and the ark. We had great fun making weather-related crafts – snow globes, rainbow sun-catchers, marshmallow snowmen, and lots of other things too.

Messy Church in Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s was getting ready for Advent with lots of activities and crafts. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to (click on one and you should get a slideshow you can click through).
[singlepic id=192]We had our first venture into Messy Church on Saturday the 21st of September. Our hall was all set up with different activities on a harvest theme, with plenty of willing helpers on hand to make sure everyone had some messy fun. We were delighted then when people started to arrive and got in about the crafts and activities.
This was a modest start to our Messy Church adventure, but an encouraging one. And we’ve already started planning our next one, so look out for Messy Advent a little later in the year.
Don’t forget to check out some photos of the morning’s fun.
It may have started a bit overcast, and the coats stayed on, but only for a little while. It wasn’t long before the sun came out, the food arrived and a lot of fun was had.
Many thanks to everyone for coming along and making the afternoon so good. And a special ‘thank you’ to everyone who contributed to the preparation, cooking, and clearing up. Your work was much appreciated.

Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s and Oathlaw Tannadice churches are hosting a number of services over the Easter period, and we would be very pleased to welcome you to any or all of them.
On Thursday the 5th of April, there will be a Maundy Thursday service, at 7pm, in Tannadice church. This service begins with some hymns and readings, before everyone sits down to a simple supper which moves into an informal communion.
On Good Friday, the 6th of April, Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s will be hosting a Tenebrae service. Tenebrae is Latin for ‘shadows’ or ‘darkness’ and this, more sombre, service takes place in a dimmed, candlelit church as we reflect on the momentous events of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial.
Then on Sunday the 8th, you are welcome to join us at either Oathlaw Tannadice at 9.45, or Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s at 11.15, as we celebrate the risen Christ on Easter morning. Both of these service will be family-friendly as there will be no Sunday Schools, the leaders taking a well-deserved break.
