Messy Church is a form of church that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It is for all ages, together, to help congregations and families grow together in their walk of faith.
Messy Church includes a welcome, creative time to explore biblical themes through getting messy, celebration time involving story, prayer, song and games followed by a sit-down meal.
It is a church for people at all stages of their faith journey. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity to introduce and discover Jesus and to grow closer to him.
Messy Church is an all-age fresh expression of church that offers counter-cultural transformation of family life through families coming together to be, to make, to eat and to celebrate God.
