Messy Church

Fresh ideas for building a Christ-centered community

Messy Church is a time when families enjoy being together, making things together, eating together and celebrating God through his word, through music and through prayer. It's different from a children's activity day because it's an event for children and their parents together. With Messy Church we are trying to be a worshipping community of all ages, centred on Christ, showing hospitality, giving people a chance to express their creativity, to sit down together to eat and have fun within a church context.

We hold monthly sessions on the 2nd Saturday of each month (no meeting in August) with the following format:

  • People arrive and go straight to craft activity tables.
  • Time of celebration, worship, talk, prayer
  • Food for all
  • Blessing


  • God will speak into people's lives
  • Volunteers and leaders
  • Next session
  • Right people to come
  • Worship leading
  • Safety for all
  • Good chat and relationships built
