Messy Church

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

  • It typically includes a welcome, a creative time to explore a biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sitting down and eating. All elements are for, people of all ages, adults and children – TOGETHER.
  • It’s all-age.
  • It’s fun.
  • All children must be accompanied by an adult – parents, grandparents and carers all welcome

Our remaining Messy Church for 2019 is on Sunday 1st December.

You will be very welcome to come to any of our services over the Festive period.
