Our Messy Church sessions for families take place once a month on a Tuesday at 4.30pm – 6.00pm.

We come together for an hour of Messy Church activities, fun and fellowship as we learn more about God and Jesus.

This is followed by a children’s meal. We’d love you to join us!

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Our next Messy Church dates are: 19th March and 16th April.

Celebrating Pentecost at Messy Church

We had a great time on the 14th of June, listening to the story, making crafts to represent the wind,flames and different languages and learned about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We shared a meal together and sang. Why not come and join us at our next meeting on Tuesday 12 th July. There will be ICE CREAM as dessert !!!

Our Messy Church relaunched on Tuesday 14th September!

We welcomed 12 families (with 21 children).

There were four activities to complete on the theme of ‘God Knows Me!’

The Bible teaches us that God knows every one of us before we were even born! How amazing is that! God knows us by name, he knows everything about us, has a plan for us and loves us no matter what….

  • A photograph frame
    “Nothing in all creation can separate us from                        God’s love for us…”                (Romans 8:39)
  • An ‘I am special’ tree
     “You have looked deep into my heart, Lord, and you know all about me. You know when I am resting or when I am working, and from heaven you discover my thoughts. You notice everything I do and everywhere I go. Before I even speak a word, you know what I will say.”            (Psalm 139:1-4)
  • A spoon puppet
    “ I say this because I know what I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you….I will give you hope and a good future.”                   (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • A prayer cube to help us when we pray
    “I pray to you, God, because you will help me.
    Listen and answer my prayer!”                      (Psalm 17:6)

Following the activities there was a Celebration service and then we all shared in a meal together.

A really big thank you to all the families who came along and also to the leaders and volunteer helpers. We all had a fabulous time!
