Messy Church

Messy Church is a fun worship event involving crafts, singing, games, Bible stories, and food. All families are welcome to join us every third Thursday of the month from 3:30pm-6pm. We have a theme each month which we explore together through paint, films, arts and crafts, songs, and much more, and we end by eating a meal together. Messy Church is a great way to introduce your family to the Bible and to coming to church in a kid-friendly environment!

Rainbows: girls aged 5-7

Monday 5:00 to 6:00pm

Rainbows is the section of Girlguiding for girls aged five to seven and a new unit, 1st Springfield Rainbows, started at the church in September.

Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun through arts and crafts, trying out cooking and playing games. Rainbows is all about learning by doing.

Rainbows follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, through which they can take part in lots of different activities with girls their own age. The Rainbow Jigsaw has four areas: Look, Learn, Laugh, Love;

Recently the Rainbows invited church members to visit their meeting and were pleased to offer their visitors cupcakes they had decorated and a special sunrise drink they had made.
