WHAT TO EXPECT

Messy Church is, as it says... MESSY!

Based around a different Bible theme each month, we provide a variety of games, crafts and activities followed by a meal. This is a fantastic opportunity for families with children of all ages to explore church together.

Messy Church runs on the first Sunday of the month from 4-6 pm (except Jan, Aug and September).

​When you arrive you will come through the main entrance and meet the Messy welcome team. They will register you and note any dietary requirements for the meal later on.

 

​The two halls are set up with games and craft activities which help everyone to explore the Bible theme in a hands-on way. We have about an hour to enjoy the games and activities (there is a lot to do!). There is also a baby corner for the little ones, and for those in school years 4 and above there’s an optional session run by one of the team.

 

​Around 5pm everyone meets in the hall for a time of celebration: where a children’s song is followed by a fun interactive telling of the Bible story.

 

We provide a hot meal for everyone. Tables of 8 are set out with drinks (non-alcoholic) and the team will serve you. All the meals are family friendly and most dietary needs can be met. ​

We finish up at 6 pm and everyone gets a chocolate and a take home sheet as they leave.

FAQs

Do I need to pay anything to come?

No, you don't. We do however take donations (there’s a box on the welcome desk). As Messy Church is self-funding this helps to cover costs and develop Messy church further.

 

​Can I leave my kids here?

Unfortunately not - the children are not supervised by our team; we provide the setting, but parents need to be with their children and help them with the games and activities. This is one of the great highlights of Messy Church - parents and children exploring faith in God together. 

What if I am gluten-intolerant or vegetarian? 

We always provide a gluten-free and vegetarian option for people, just let our welcome team know when you arrive.
