Messy Church is a new kind of church held on a day other than Sunday which is for children and adults and aimed at all ages and all families.
What happens in Messy Church?
Messy Church will last around an hour and a half to two hours, Mini Messy Church is over in an hour.
We have various tables around the room with different crafts on them – all associated with the theme or story from the Bible. There should be something for a variety of ages. Children and parents will be participating together.
We have a short time of Celebration, 10-15 minutes at most, to sing a song, tell the story connected to the craft and for a short prayer. The story will link to the craft activities.
Finally, we have something to eat and drink. This might be coffee, tea or juice and biscuits at a Mini-Messy Church, or it might be more of a picnic lunch or tea at Messy Church.
You’ll find the date of the next Mini-Messy Church or Messy Church on our What’s On page.
