Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults at all stages of their faith journey.
Each session has a Biblical theme which is explored through craft activities, games, puppets, story, prayer, song and ends with a sit-down meal together.
We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month (apart from August) from 3 – 5pm.
Messy Church dates for 2018 / 2019
All are welcome to join us as a family for these sessions.

We all fit together!!
Theme – Dusty Drawing
Second -chance craft
We recycled tins to make a Night light and thought about how recycling gives unwanted items a second chance. In our story Jesus gave the woman a second chance.
We made our own bridges and then tested them to see if they could carry weight without collapsing!! In our story Jesus showed kindness by reaching out to a stranger.
We decorated smooth pebbles changing something plain into something of beauty. We thought about the words we use when we speak to others – do they hurt or heal?
We chose an emoji that represented one of the emotions of the character in our story and thought about times when we have felt like this.
Theme – Always with us
New Creation butterfly
We made a colourful butterfly and talked about what is special about a butterfly. The Bible says that when we believe in Jesus, we change in to something new too!! We don’t look different, but we are different inside because God’s spirit comes in to our lives and helps us become more like Him.
The colours of Easter keyring
We made a keyring and talked about what the colour of each bead reminded us of.
We coloured in a cross and talked about how Jesus’ resurrection and new life has brought people hope in the past and still brings people hope today.
Theme – Dazzling Disciples
We made a star and talked about how we can never count the number of stars, as much as we try. We thought about how we can shine like a star to be a disciple of God.
Galaxy Dough creations
We talked about how big the galaxy and the world are. God thought of everything and created stars to lighten up the sky. He created us to be dazzling disciples, spreading God’s light to all the world.
We rubbed the balloon on our hair and then made the tissue paper disciples stand up and dance! We thought about why that had happened and talked about how God helps us to be His disciples.
