Paint swabbing onto a banner yet to be completed, glitter sticking to hands and aprons, smells of food cooking in the background and worship which get families dancing and sharing God’s love together.
Anyone walking into a Messy Church session would discover quickly interaction, creative fun and a sense of a God journey which connects with any ages.
In a time when families can do so much apart Messy Church is focused on drawing them together to sense and know Gods love for us all as individuals whilst gifting us with the best things in being a body together.
What Messy Church is!

- It’s all-age.
- It’s fun.
- Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.
- It includes some creative time to explore bible themes through getting messy; a celebration time which might involve story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a shared meal together.
- Its values are those of hospitality, creativity and celebration.
- It hopes to promotes good ways of growing as a family: whatever shape of family, an extended family and a global and church family.
- The focus above all else is to have fun sharing as family, with God, His love and life.
