Valuing individuals, aspiring and achieving together in faith

Messy Church

  • Messy Church is a new way to do Church that is creative and exciting, for children and adults alike.
  • Messy Church takes place once a month after school on a Tuesday from 3.30-5.30pm
  • Children and parents (or grandparents!) do a variety of games and activities together (often involving something messy, like paint, glue, icing, water). We think about a story from the Bible, and have a song or two and some prayer.
  • Then we enjoy a cooked meal prepared by the school cook.
  • At the moment it's all free, but contributions towards the cost are welcome
  • Everyone is welcome provided you book in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis, by filling in a booking from and giving it to the office.
