Messy Church—Save the Date!

From Jayne Coy: “We have been able to arrange for the Messy Church National co-ordinators to come to Thunder Bay to do a workshop for us, tentatively this will be on Saturday 17th October. This is a fabulous opportunity for our Deanery to explore a new, fun and creative way to introduce people to church, to fling our big scary wooden doors wide open to young families looking for a no-strings-attached, zero cost, fun couple of hours. When I get more information I will forward it on, but please pencil this into your schedules.”
