Messy Church is an all-age fresh expression of church that offers a time for families and individuals to come together to be, to make, to eat and to celebrate God.

We hope you can join us. For those who may not know what Messy Church is:

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 (and sometimes in a place) 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 food together. All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children.
     

  •   It´s a time when adults and children can have fun together.
     

  •  It's a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age.
     

  •  Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.

Messy Church isn't...

 

  • ... just for children - Messy Church needs to be constantly creative in its thinking about how to involve very different people: young and old, families and single people, male and female, academic and practical, poor and rich.
     

  •  ... 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.
     

  •  ... a way of getting people to come to church on Sunday - There are examples of people starting in Messy Church and deciding to join Sunday church as well but these are the exception rather than the rule. If people wanted to go to established church, they would be going by now. 
     

  •  ... just for families - All are welcome: Church is inclusive, not exclusive.
