Messy Church

Our next event planned for Sunday 29th March 2020 has had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.  




Welcome to our Messy Church page!

Messy Church is a national initiative of the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF).

Many churches run a Messy Church and you may already know people who attend one.

But if you are new to the idea here's a summary of what it's about:

  • Messy Church is a form of church for families (children and adults) that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
  • It's primarily for people who don't already belong to another form of church.
  • It meets at a time and place that suits people who don't already belong to church.
  • It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore a biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables.

We believe that Messy Church   offers something exciting on a regular basis for families and the Benefice will be offering regular sessions.

The Messy Church dates for 2020 so far are:

2nd February

29th March

17th May
