Messy Church

Messy Church is a different kind of church gathering, generally held on a day other than Sunday which is aimed at all ages and all families, large or small. Normally at the Good Shepherd, Messy Church is on a Saturday afternoon once a month – BUT NOW it is on-line all the time!

Messy Church is church in its own right – even on-line. It doesn’t follow the format of traditional church because it provides something which is tailored for anyone who has no previous experience of church and those who have lots.

It offers a variety of ways of thinking about the things that Jesus, and others, taught through the Bible, of worshipping God and caring for each other in prayer and practical ways.

This week we continue with Paul’s letter to the Church in Philippi.  Paul wrote his letter from prison! He hadn’t done anything wrong really, the Roman’s who were in charge at the time didn’t like Paul telling everyone about Jesus, telling them the Jesus is King. And so they put Paul in prison to keep him quiet. But that didn’t work because Paul told all the guards in the prison about Jesus and they told their families and so the love of Jesus was being shared with even more people!

What does that maybe tell us? Even if we are having difficult times, we need to still think of those around us and have hope and courage that God will help us.
