End of term
Messy Church meets once a month during term times for families who find it difficult to attend church on Sunday mornings.
Messy Church includes arts and crafts, celebration and food.
We start at 3.00 pm with a welcome from Janice and then the children have a variety of crafts to make. They can bring their favourite creation into Church at 4.00 pm for a short story and some songs to celebrate. Then it is back into the hall for high tea at 4.30 pm for the children and teas and coffees for the adults. Occasionally accompanied by Marva’s famous cakes! We finish at 5.00 pm with a good time had by all!
- Welcome the whole family together, not just the children
- Are a church not a club
- Enjoy everyone’s company

From face painting to assembling your very own Easter Garden or Christmas table decoration there’s usually something for everyone. At half time there is a chill out time in order to listen to the Easter or Christmas story but then on with a load of new crafts. Children under 7 should be accompanied by an adult but don’t let this put you off – the adults enjoy it as much as the children!
