What Is It?

Messy Church is a fun way of being church designed with families in mind - that's children and adults - in fact all ages! Typically it includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore a theme from the Bible through having fun and getting messy; a short celebration involving story, prayer, song and games; and a sit-down tea together at tables.

Who's It For?

It's primarily for those who don't already belong to another form of church. It's for people at any stage in their faith and of any age.

When Is It?

Every first Sunday of the month (except August), 4.00pm to 5.30pm

4.00-4.45pm | Creative Time
4.45-5.00pm | Celebration
5.00-5.30pm | Tea

How Much Does It Cost?

Nothing - it's free!


We take our responsibility to protect our children very seriously. All our activities are covered by the Church of England's child protection guidelines and all our regular helpers are DBS checked.
