Coming up...

It's great that Messy Church remains busy and fun during the summer months. In August (Sunday 23, 4pm) we have even more of a food focus than usual and we'll be thinking about special meals and one meal in particular that Jesus had with some of his closest friends. We're inviting all Messy Church families to bring a favourite dish with them to share with others...

In September (Sunday 27, 4pm) our Messy Church
has a musical theme and we're going to be having a bit of a jamming session with any parents and children who can play instruments. If you are musical and do play please consider coming along with (if possible) your musical instrument. We'll understand if you can't bring your piano!

If you are not very musical we'll help you to find your inner musician and get you involved with some of the percussion instruments.

Don't forget there is always the opportunity to come along on Sunday mornings. Our new 2SOW service on the second Sunday of the month at 10.30am is suitable for all ages and just noisy enough for little ones (and parents) to relax, move about and have a good time. Drinks and doughnuts from 10am.. come early for a sugar rush!

Summer messiness

OK, so we have been a little quiet of late, at least blog-wise. However Messy Church continues to be as fun as ever with the monthly mix of mayhem and messiness. June was one of our busiest sessions this year with some great outdoor activities and a BBQ. This month (Sunday26 July) we are looking at 'belonging' and, if you are missing the beach, I have it on good authority that there will be sand involved in one activity!

Messy Church families might also like to join us for 2SOW on the second Sunday of every month at 10.30am. It is not Messy Church but it is a short service, ideal for families, with songs, drama, story and much more, In fact if you arrive early we serve refreshments (doughnuts, drinks, etc) from 10am! Why not give it a try on 9 August at 10.30am

Light in the Darkness!

The nights are drawing in and here at Messy Church its time to party with our fun celebration of light in the darkness on Sunday 26th October, 4pm to 6pm.
We'll start with some fun craft activities, followed by stories and songs, all finishing with a delicious family meal. 
Children are welcome to come in fancy dress— super-heroes or super-heroines or something light-related (Please no scary costumes because we’re celebrating light and good things not darkness!).
