Messy Church offers you the chance to come together and play in a fun and informal way. It is also an opportunity to explore Christianity. The meetings use activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect on a God of creativity and most also offers some free hospitality - whether it's a cup of tea, plate of sandwiches to share or a hot meal.
Messy Church reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
You can find out more about Messy Church on thier website which includes a 'find a Messy Church near you' option.
