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
