Messy Church is a club for families with children between the ages of 3 – 11 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and younger siblings are also welcome. Each month expect to get involved in playing games, making things and getting messy!

Every session has a theme, so we will spend time exploring it together with stories and songs. We’ll even feed you ALL with a hot dinner at the end!

We currently have a few vacancies. If you would like to join just telephone Janice on 01702 217095 to book your place. Hope to see you there.

What is Messy Church like?

We start with coffee, squash & biscuits. Then there are lots of arts, crafts and games.  Next a short service with stories, songs and prayers followed by a hot meal. There is no charge for MessyChurch.

It takes place on the second Thursday of each month 3.30 – 6pmin the church hall, offering both children and adults the opportunity to meet up with friends and a chance to relax and be creative together.

It is anticipated that Messy Church will  be very popular and therefore you are advised to book a place for you and your child(ren) in advance by contacting Janice Drewer on  01702 217095
There is no admission fee, though donations will be welcome towards the running costs.
