Seeking to love and serve God in the community and in the world

Messy Church

Our church has run a Messy Church for over 13 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 begins with a simple snack meal for children and their parents, who are also encouraged to stay with their children ( please ensure an adult is with your child if he/she is under the age of 5) . 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 and is told by an experienced teacher. Children are encouraged to take part in the story telling where appropriate.

During the coronavirus pandemic Messy Church cannot meet at church and is provided in craft bags collected/delivered at times advertised on the Church Facebook or Broomfield Hub and supplemented with online material on this page

Messy Summer Fun bags are available to collect from the Church on Friday July 16th 

between 9 & 10am. 

Please register on the Messy Church registration page before July 6th to request bags for your children to  keep busy during the summer.

You can follow us on our Church facebook page  for the latest information on activities for children
