Words from the Introduction to Messy Easter...

Happy Easter!

We may not be absolutely sure when Easter Day is going to be each year, but when it comes, hurrah! Easter is one of the three most important times in the Christian church calendar, along with Christmas and Pentecost. We have a time to prepare for  it -- Lent. We have a time of exceptional events to explore on the way -- Holy Week. Then we arrive at one of the most joyous and great celebrations of the year -- Easter Day!

The season of Lent and Easter gathers together thoughts about preparation, abstinence, repentance, reflection, self-sacrifice, death, resurrection, forgiveness, hope, assurance and celebration. Easter is the celebration of Christ's resurrection from the dead. As it is the oldest and most important festival of the Christian church, it also includes many traditions, depending on where in the world you live.

Your Messy Church, if monthly, could fall at any time between the beginning of Lent and Easter Day. You may wish to pack the whole story into two hours or select some special themes or cover just part of the journey to Easter and continue it next year. However you offer Easter to your community, please use this book as your bag of pick 'n' mix. It is important that we find as many ways as we can to help families engage with the real story of Easter.

This book explores the desert in Lent, uncovers the key events of Holy Week and helps you to experience the surprise of Easter morning. The three sessions invite all ages to discover the elements of the Easter story through many methods and styles of creativity, using many different art media and skills. Everyone learns in different ways so there is a wide variety of ideas for those who enjoy activity based learning.

In addition to the three main sessions, there is an 'Easter all-sorts' section with additional ideas. It is less detailed but gives examples of alternative crafts and activities to use at any Easter occasion.

Messy Church offers an abundance of opportunities to share the Easter story with the community.

We hear great stories of Messy Churches on Good Friday mornings, where hundreds of people of all ages gather to open up the Easter story and eat hot cross buns together.

Some Messy Churches link up with their local school to explore the Easter journey and some use the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Day, a day of waiting, to shout out the message that Jesus is alive. Thank you, Messy Churches everywhere, for your wonderful all-age ministry in your local communities. Enjoy the Mess! And not an Easter bunny in sight...
