WHAT MESSY CHURCH IS AND ISN'T

 

Messy Church:

  • Is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

  • Is for people who don't already belong to another form of church as well as those who do.

  • Meets at a time (and sometimes in a place) that suits people who don't already belong to church.

  • Typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables.

  • Is all-age.

  • Is fun.

  • Is a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age.

  • Aims to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.

 

Messy Church isn't...

  • ... just for children –

  • ... a club - The whole of Messy Church is about worshipping God, having fellowship, exploring faith matters. It welcomes everyone, involves everyone, values everyone, is always there for the outsider. It's a church. 

  •  ... a way of getting people to come to church on Sunday - There are examples of people starting in Messy Church and deciding to join Sunday church as well but that is not its main purpose.

  • ... just for church families

  • ... just for families - All are welcome: single, widowed, childless, divorced. Church is inclusive, not exclusive.
