Creative fun in ‘messy’ cathedral event in Bury St Edmunds
St Edmundsbury Cathedral was transformed into a fun-filled hive of ‘messy’ creative activity for youngsters.
Children showcased their artistsic flair in an array of colourful work on the theme of Holy Week during the ‘Messy Cathedral’ event.
They made crowns, decorated crosses, iced biscuits and even painted their feet.
There was also time for worship in the nave of the cathedral, in Bury St Edmunds.
The event ended with the sharing of food.
It was part of national initiative ‘Messy Church’ which encourages families to explore Biblical themes together through crafts workship and food. It is the first time such an event has been held in the cathedral.
The Rev Carl Melville, cathedral curate and organiser of the event, said: “Messy Churches are proving to be a popular way for families to have fun together, whilst growing in their knowledge of the Christian faith.”
