Messy Church is part of a worldwide network. It is a great way for families to gather as a church together.
We meet once every half term on a Sunday afternoon between 3-5pm.
Dates are available on this page and we also send out publicity through our local school and to families we have contact with and put up banners and posters too.
Each time we meet we have a different bible theme. We begin with refreshments and are then free to move around the themed activities doing and making as much as we like. We have a baby corner for our youngest members and all generation of the family are welcome.
At about 4pm we move over to Ings Church for a short time of celebration worship. We have fun songs, our bible story and an opportunity for interactive prayer. Then it's back over to the hall to be served out delicious 2 course tea.
There is no need to book, but if you have and special dietary requirements please let us know in advance.
We share our activities on Pintrest.
Our Messy Church Team have as much fun as the families and would love you to join us.
Below are some of the activities we have enjoyed over the past months.
