Children's Activities in Northiam

Education, Play, Stories, Craft & Food!

At Open The Book, held at Northiam Primary School during March & April, we learned about The Easter Story. We enacted scenes before and after Jesus' death and learned about God's sacrifice and the amazing grace which allows us to be forgiven and accepted into heaven. 

Our 2019 Easter Colouring Competition was announced and lots of children entered. It has been judged and the lucky winners have been presented with their prizes of A Real Easter Egg (chocolate egg with the Christian message). All children in the Nursery who took part received a colourful Easter Story book.   

You can view the colourful entries in Church. There is an exhibition of the children's work displayed in coffee corner.


We also participated at The Spring Horticultural Show on Saturday 6th April, with an amazing display of craft 'bugs' - made by children at Messy Church.  The display then moved to the church for Holy Week.

At Messy Church on Sunday 14th April we made Holy Week craft mobiles followed by songs, teachings and an Easter Egg Hunt.

Summer Picnic


A very select group of church members set out around the Dixter Loop footpaths and enjoyed good weather, splendid views and animated conversation. At the picnic at the end we made very good use of “Peter’s Bench” bathed in sunshine, appreciating the wild flowers in the churchyard and being entertained by the families of swifts currently nesting in the church eaves.

As always it was lovely to spend time together, we would love to welcome you to Messy Church too!
