Messy Church Mardi Gras coming to St. Saviour’s

St. Saviour’s Anglican Church is getting ready to celebrate Messy Church Mardi Gras on Tuesday.

St. Saviour’s Anglican Church hosts its fifth annual Messy Church Mardi Gras celebration on Tuesday.

St. Saviour’s Anglican Church is getting ready to celebrate Messy Church Mardi Gras on Tuesday. This promises to be a wonderful evening of crafts, fellowship, fun and food.

So what is Messy Church? It is a form of church for children and adults that combines creativity, hospitality and celebration.

Messy Church sessions begin with a welcome, followed by a creative time exploring a theme based on the appropriate church season. This time, there is a musical theme, and there will be supplies to create a number of different musical instruments. Clinton Swanson and other young musicians will lead everyone in making music on the newly-made instruments.

Everyone then moves into the chapel for prayer, song and a Eucharist. A sit down meal follows. This year, as it isShrove Tuesday, pancakes will be served, including a gluten free option.

This will be St. Saviour’s fifth Messy Church and if previous ones are anything to go by, it will be great fun for all ages and very well attended. It’s Feb. 9 from 5 to 7 p.m. at 701 Ward St. in Nelson.
