Our Messy Church normally welcomes up to 70 children and 50 adults.  You’re invited to join us in this amazing new way of being church for families who find it hard to go to church on a Sunday.  Messy Church is after School at 3.30pm on a Thursday once a month.

A relaxed and informal church with a warm welcome for the whole family with crafts, songs, drama, food – and plenty of opportunity to have and make a mess! 

Children – a place to meet to friends, learn new things along with your adult.
Mums, Dads, Grandads, Grandmas, Carers – a place to spend quality time with your children and grandchildren and make links with other families.
3.30pm – 4.00pm   Messy Welcome with drink and biscuit
3.45pm-5.00pm   Messy Craft, an hour of craft and other activities
5.00pm – 5.15pm   Messy Worship, a short time of celebration in the church as we draw together everything we have been discovering today.
