St. Augustine’s Parkland launched its Messy Church on June 2, 2018. The event drew families from all parts of the Parkland region and from Edmonton. There were 52 people in total and of that there were 23 children and teenagers.
The theme focused on Pentecost, the birth of the Church and, of course, the birth of Messy Church at St. Augustine’s Parkland! Everyone learned about the Pentecost experience through the themes of wind, fire, tongues and celebrating as a church together. Our youth minister, Tara Munn, discussed with everyone the importance of God’s Holy Spirit in our lives and how each one of us is a gift from God and to the Church. We rounded out our celebration with a BBQ supper and fellowship. Many who attended have already expressed their appreciation and love for this new experience of Church and look forward to attending our monthly Messy Church!
