Messy Church is a form of church for all the family that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
There is plenty of time for creativity and play with a short time of worship, involving a Bible story, prayer and songs. Then children and adults all sit down for a meal together.
During the current time, it has not been possible to hold Messy Church in the usual way. However, we really enjoyed our Messy Christingle and our Crib Service – with trails to follow, activity bags to collect and services on Zoom to join. We hope to repeat this form of Messy Church very soon!
If you would like to know more about our Messy Church, please get in touch with Elisabeth Sutcliffe.
After one of our Messy Church services, Maddie, one of our young people, said:
“It felt nice being with so many children all close to God and I really liked it. I like that we got to move round to different areas so it felt less boring than being in one place. It was good to have a mix of activities. I really liked playing with the Lego as it meant we could use our own imagination to make something that fitted with the story . I can’t wait to go again!”
