Messy Church

What Messy Church is:

Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

It’s primarily for people who don’t already belong to another form of church.

It meets at a time that suits people who don’t already belong to church

It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables. All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children.

What Messy Church isn’t:

Just for children
A club – The whole of Messy Church is about worshipping God, having fellowship, exploring faith matters. It welcomes everyone, involves everyone, values everyone, is always there for the outsider.

It’s a church just for families – All are welcome: single, widowed, childless, divorced. Church is inclusive, not exclusive
