What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is a national movement and part of the Bible Reading Fellowship. It creates church communities that are, well, messy! That means we can get messy with paint and glue and other creative stuff, and it means we can get messy in showing our vulnerable sides with one another too.

What happens at Messy Church?

Messy Church will have lots of fun activities for parents and children to do together. Then there will time to worship God before everybody shares food. It's a chance to find out more of God's stories and grow together as God's people.

Activities might be art, or games, or drama. The worship might be traditional or modern, or a mixture of both.

We don't have to be perfect when we come to church — our kids' hair can be uncombed, they can make noise, we can be sad or anxious or lonely, and we can explore our wonderful creative God through stuff that leaves Play-Doh and paint everywhere.

Who Is Messy Church For?

Messy Church is for all ages, to worship together. Many of the events have lots of toddlers, some may have only a few — but you are welcome whether your child is one of 30 in their age group, or the only one.

And Messy Church is for you too — the parents and carers aren't just there to supervise their children — they're there to worship, and come closer to God, and grow in faith.
