At Prenton we hold our version of ‘Messy Church’, which we call ‘Jigsaw’, on a Thursday morning during school holiday times. This time we thought we would launch our new venture of ‘Lego Church’. So a trip to Wilkinsons to buy Lego, The Range for storage boxes, a therapeutic afternoon sorting into colours and we were ready to go!
Our families arrived and 30 children, ranging from ages one to 13, got stuck in to building, with some eager parents standing by to advise! Once all were gathered we stopped to watch a Lego story of the wise man and the foolish man. We thought about house designs and then the children set off to complete the challenge of building houses. These ranged from a small flat roof style to a mansion with outdoor parking and one even had their own pool and hot-tub. A break for tea and toast and then the next challenge of re-sorting the Lego. Every piece made it back to the correct box and great fun was had by all.
Next time Jigsaw will return to its different activities and we hope to continue our Lego Church on the first Saturday of the month when we also hold our monthly coffee morning. Anyone would be very welcome to join us for any of these activities to see what we are doing at Prenton.
In August we will be holding our 26th Annual Summer holiday club when once again we will sharing the stories of Jesus with the children of Prenton.
