MESSY CHURCH

Our local primary school is a church of England school and 2 or 3 times a term the children come to the church for Messy Church.  Activities of all sorts (cutting and sticking especially poplular!),takes place with songs and prayers. Refreshments are provided before the children are picked up from the church to go home.

All in Erpingham Church

The next Messy Church will  be in January next term.

Erpingham School is now federated with Northrepps School. We have a new executive head Angie Hamilton and a senior teacher Mrs Laura Watts at Erpingham School. Both of them are very supportive of Messy Church!

We are very pleased that the church now takes Collective Worship (assembly) at the school every Wednesday at 12 noon and use 'Open the Book'. This is a way of telling Bible stories using visual aids and importantly dressing up! Thanks to the Rev. Michael Banks and his wife Judith for starting this initiative. The children love it!!

 

At the October Group Service some children from the school - reenacted the story of Zachaeus the tax collector 'Open the Book' style.  The congregation were most impressed and the children were marvellous!
