A FREE event aimed at encouraging families to spend more time together was held at a Daventry church last week.
The Messy Church day featured a variety of craft activities, games and music followed by a short celebration and meal.
Around 32 children and 20 adults attended the event, which was held at the Methodist Church in Golding Close.
Organiser Helen Bowen said: “Messy Church is about families meeting together for a couple of hours to have a fun time together
“It was important that the adults helped the children with the activities so all were involved working on the theme, which this time was about how everyone is important to God.
“There was no charge but contributions to costs were accepted, and many commented on the good time they had.”
The date for the next Messy Church event is Friday, May 18 at 4.30pm.
