In church buildings, schools and halls up, down and across the country, something ‘Messy’ is taking place …church!
It may not be church as many would recognise but it is church none the less.
Messy Church is an attempt to be church for families who might want to meet Jesus, belong to their local church and bring up their children as Christians but can’t cope with traditional Sunday morning church services.
It is an all-age church where everyone is valued equally
– provides an informal environment for all-ages to explore and experience faith and worship through crafts, food and celebration
– describes each and every one of us as no one is perfect and each of us lead messy lives for many reasons
– invites us to come together, making things together, eating together and celebrating God together
