Special Messy Church in January
18th January 2019, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
Messy Church is a new kind of church held on a day other than Sunday which is for children and adults and aimed at all ages and all families. This one is extra extra special as we’re combining it with the Share the Light candle service!
Churches which have organised Messy Church have found that it is a good way to do something new for people without any connection with a church or for people who have never been to church before.
Messy Church is a church in its own right. It doesn’t follow the format of traditional church because it provides something which is tailored for families who have no previous experience of church.
Who is Messy Church for?
Messy Church is mainly intended for people who don’t already belong to another form of church, but anyone can come, of any age and at any stage on your journey of faith.
Each session includes:
Creative time to explore a topic using activities and crafts
A short all age talk altogether which explores the theme using bible stories and songs
We end with a freshly prepared hot meal which is provided for everyone.
The idea is that everyone joins in everything: there are no separate adults’ and children’s activities.
What does it cost?
Messy Church is free and you do not have to pay anything. If you wish to make a contribution towards the costs of the food and craft activities there is a donation pot available.
