Messy Church




Our next Messy Church will be on

Saturday xx July 20xx

at St Matthew’s Church

Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

It’s primarily for people who don’t already belong to another form of church.

It meets at a time that suits people who don’t already belong to church.

It 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 at the end something to eat.

It’s for people of all ages, adults and children.

It’s fun.

It’s a church for people at any stage of their faith journey.

It models and promotes good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family, an extended family, and a global and local church family.

Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.
