Meets every school holiday, this video shows a little of what goes on.

A way of being in church for families involving fun;

A church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour;

found across the world;

values are about being Christ-centred;

for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

Messy Church values are:

Christ-centred

Messy Church is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

All-age

It is for adults and children to enjoy together – every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.

Creativity

It uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.

Hospitality

It reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church, providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive. Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together – whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, or sausage and mash.

Celebration

It reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
