Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

It's for people who are looking for another way to do church.

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.

What happens at Messy Church?

It typically includes:

  • a welcome,
  • a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy;
  • a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar;
  • and a sit-down meal together at tables.

All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children.
