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 2017 / 2018
