Messy Church is an intergenerational church involving creativity, fun, hospitality and celebration - a church for adults and children to enjoy together, alongside one another.
Everyone is welcome although all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Messy Church values
Messy Church is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Messy Church believes, with the historic churches, in one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Messy Church is for adults and children to enjoy together. Every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.
Messy Church uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.
Messy Church reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church, providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive. Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together – whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, a barbecue or sausage and mash.
Messy Church reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
Messy Church is a once a month time when families can come together to enjoy creativity, music and eating together
Our aims are:
• To help families feel they belong in church and to each other
• To help people have fun and be creative together
• To learn about Jesus through hospitality, friendship, stories and songs
There is no charge for Messy Church and everyone is welcome!
