Messy Church

Next Session Saturday May 2024

Meets on the second Saturday of each month from 11am and is open to all families in our community who want to engage in our activities and event. Each month has a theme where we do a range of messy activities, games, stories and thought.

There is no charge and a light lunch is provided.

What is Messy Church?

  • It’s designed for the whole family.
  • Parents and children come together to share in a range of fun and creative activities.
  • No-one is too young or too old to be a part of Messy Church.
  • The activities are usually based around a story from the Bible.
  • It’s a great way for children to learn, and for parents to spend quality time with them.
  • It’s an opportunity for both children and adults to meet and make friends.
  • And what better way to end up than by sharing a meal together.
  • You do not have to be a Christian to come to Messy Church.
  • Everyone – of any faith or none – is welcome.
  • You will not be pushed into doing or saying anything you don’t feel comfortable with.
  • There will always be a vegetarian option at the meal.
