Messy Church is a way of being church for families and others. It is Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.
Our Benefice Messy Church is: a creative time for families to explore a biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer and song; and a sit-down meal together at tables. All elements are for, and include, people of all ages, adults and children.
We draw in families who find conventional church intimidating and would not normally attend services, but can easily understand and relate to the informality of Messy Church.
Our team is mostly made up from our Benefice congregations and they all receive bi-annual Safeguarding training and are DBS cleared.
