Messy Church

Come and join us for Christmas crafts, activities, music and food. Our theme is light.

All ages are welcome. Please bring your children along and stay with them during the session. Tea and coffee will be available.

Just a reminder:

‘Messy Church’ is:

  • a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
  • it meets at a time (and sometimes in a place) that suits people who don’t necessarily belong to church.
  • it typically includes a welcome, a creative time to explore a biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and sharing food together.
  • it’s fun.
  • it’s a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age.
  • it models and promotes good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family, an extended family, and a global and local church family.
  • its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.

We really look forward to seeing you and preparing our church for Festival of Light.
