What is Messy Church?
Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration & hospitality.
It is for all ages and is very informal, the afternoon will have a biblical theme and there are activities loosely based on this theme, which includes art, craft, games and sometimes baking.
We start the afternoon at 3pm with an hour of activities, and then everyone walks along to Holy Trinity Church for a brief reflection on the theme, followed by a short prayer and fun song.
Afterwards, everyone is invited back to school for a sit down meal together, normally this will be a hot 2-course meal, for example sausage & mash, pasta bolognese (the veggie option is available, if advised in advance) followed by a yummy pudding. The afternoon is normally finished by 5/5.15pm.
There is no charge for coming along to Messy Church although there is the opportunity to make a token donation, should you so wish.
We look forward to welcoming you along to the next Messy Church.
