What is Messy Church?

Messy church is:

  • is a way of being church for families (in fact anyone of any age) involving fun
  • is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour
  • is found across the world
  • values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration

All-age

It is for adults and children to enjoy together - every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages

Creativity

It uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories,
to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.

Hospitality

It reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church,
providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive.
Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together -
whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, or sausage and mash.

Celebration

It reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
