St Nicholas Parish Church in Dereham had to be more creative when it came to connecting with families for the event.

Children were able to collect a Messy Church activity bag full of craft kits, colouring books and yummy treats.

Evelyn Speed, organises Messy Church at St Nicholas, said: “Due to covid, we cannot have our usual Messy Church sessions, so we have started with Messy Church activity bags.

“The children who came were very excited to see what they had in their bags, and to say hello to their furry friend, Digger Rabbit, who was in attendance, complete with a face mask.
