Messy Church

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

Christ-centred

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.

All-age

Messy Church is for adults and children to enjoy together. Every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.

Creativity

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.

Hospitality

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.

Celebration

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!

Messy Church is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), a Registered Charity, visit www.brf.org.uk
