Messy Church

When is Messy Church?

Messy Church is held on the second Sunday of every month from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm.

*In these difficult times, we are unable to meet together physically for Messy Church, but services are online for everyone to join in with for a story and some craft ideas – more details below!*

In 2021, Messy Church will be online once a month, with the videos including crafts, songs and a story available on our YouTube Channel. The videos will go live at the time we would have started Messy Church each month, but will be available to watch whenever you want after that. You can catch up with any of the previous Messy Church videos on our YouTube Channel (links below).

As soon as we are able to meet safely together in person, we will let everyone know!

What is Messy Church?

It is an all-age church service where everyone is valued equally.

It provides an informal environment for all-ages to explore and experience faith and worship through crafts, food (a light meal is provided) and celebration.

It describes each and every one of us as no one is perfect and each of us lead messy lives for many reasons.

It invites us to come together, making things together, eating together and celebrating God together.

Messy Church is NOT just a craft club! Messy Church is NOT just for children! Messy Church is for everyone – young & old alike, adults, children, teenagers, carers, grandparents, come as friends, families or partners.

Because these are family events and the leaders are fully involved in the different activities, all children / young people must be accompanied by an adult. We want everyone to be safe and to be able to have fun together. Come along and try us out.
