Messy Church is a time for all ages to gather together to connect as a community focused around the Christian message. There is an order and structure to Messy Church, despite its name, and there is liturgy and learning, reflection and celebration. Everything you would expect to find in a service of worship is in Messy Church – in fact, it is more aligned to the early church described in Acts and Paul’s letters than what we call church today.
Messy Church acknowledges that life is generally a messy business. Sunday mornings are no longer the time when everyone gathers at their local church. Whole generations of people have never set foot in a church, not even for weddings or funerals. A lot of people now identify as being spiritual but not religious, however they understand that to be. Not offering judgement here, just the reality.
• yourself and anyone else you’d like to invite – remember, not just children
• a plate of food to share for the meal (finger food and simple please!)
• an open mind and heart and a sense of adventure
Messy Church is church for families and individuals who may not find other forms of
church appealing or who don’t yet belong to a church.
