The Girl with the Answer

Messy Church logoHe was a big powerful soldier, but he had a problem. Lots of people had no success when they tried to help him, but there was one little girl who might just have the answer.
But did the soldier have the courage to ask her?
And just what was the little girl’s secret?

Find out more at Messy Church on Sunday 14th June, at 3pm in the Forge Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND.
We’ll have crafts, Bible stories, songs, activities and games for people of all ages and ending with a meal together. Hope you can join us!
