Messy Church

Sunday afternoons just got a whole lot more exciting!

Once a month, we have Messy Church to worship God creatively and have lots of fun!

Lasting for around two hours (including dinner) we have a different theme each time.

We begin with a choice of amazing activities which help us to explore the theme. These include crafts, games and challenges, and we usually have one activity to help us pray. There is always a crèche space with toys for our youngest members to enjoy.

Then we come together for a short talk and a couple of songs, and we round up the afternoon by having a meal.

Everyone is welcome at Messy Church, and adults can enjoy the activities just as much as the children.
 
Recent highlights have been flying paper aeroplanes from the church balcony, making Easter Gardens and watching a clip from “Frozen” to help us think about Jesus' sacrificial love.

Messy Church is great fun, and an excellent chance to to chat with new friends over a delicious dinner.
