Messy Church

messy church


Our church has run a Messy Church for over 10 years.

Messy Church meets every month (usually the last Monday in the month) from September through to July. Messy Church takes a bible or church celebration theme. Messy Church starts at 3.30pm after school has ended and begin with a simple snack meal for children and their parents, who are also encouraged to attend with their children. A story from the bible or other source precedes the opportunity to take part in  five or six craft activities to choose from, all based around the theme for the day. Sometimes with the aid of video clips or music, a familiar story from the bible is told in language and pictures which children can understand told by an experienced teacher. Children are encouraged to take part in the story telling where appropriate.


The last Messy Church of the year is to be held on July 16th. Dates have not yet been set for September 2018 onwards but will aim to be the last Monday each Month where possible. In the meantime if you would like to receive details of Messy Church events please e-mail Dianne click here for her e-mail. Alternatively the date of the next Messy Church is advertised on the Messy Church poster outside the church and in the church notice board.


If you have a spare couple of hours why not come along and see what the children get up to? You can read feedback from children in our Topic magazine page each month.


The next Messy Churches are on September 24th; October 29th, November 26th.
