Partnership in the Gospel
We started Messy Church in the summer of 2014, and have run (roughly) monthly since then. Each month, a planning team (around six people) meets to map out the theme and activity stations. This leads to a handbook each month, that discusses the Biblical passage and a short description of each station. The Celebration normally uses a PowerPoint presentation, with images, song words and prayers.
Every month we take ideas from other Messy Churches - very few of our plans are original! We are very grateful to the Messy Church community for this, and in the same way, we want to make our plans easily available for anyone else to use. Each month, we will upload the handbook, station signs and questions, Celebration PowerPoint and anything else useful we can think of.
If you are running a Messy Church or family activities in a church of any kind, please feel free to use or adapt anything from our experience. If you find it useful, it would be great to know, but please use these however suits your needs best.
