Resources for Children

Click on the links below to find some resources for children of all ages.

Please check back here regularly as we will update and add links from time to time to all the good resources for families we have found from other dioceses and organisations.

There’s also Messy Church themselves who have some fantastic ideas – Click here to go to their website 

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.
5.20pm-5.45pm   Messy Meal, no need to rush home and feed the family, relax and have a meal with us.
Although there is no formal charge for Messy Church, donations are gratefully received.

Meeting every Month at St. Mary’s Church Hall on Thursdays, Messy Church is led by Lorraine Yeomans.  You can contact her by email, and her email address is familiesworker@stmarywarsash.org.uk

We ask for a donation of £1.00 per child as a contribution towards the costs associated with Messy Church.
