Peterhead Methodist Church, Queen Street, will be starting its Messy Church project on Saturday, July 2, from 10am until 12.30pm and those interested are warmly invited.

This is a monthly event which is open to families so that they can come and have fun learning about Jesus. During the morning, there will be lots of craft activities on offer for everyone to try.

Each month a different theme will be looked at. Following on from the craft, there will be a short time of worship and then, at the end of time together, a light lunch will be served.

There is no charge to come but please ensure that children come with an adult relative to promote the family aspect of the occasion.
