So what is Messy Church?
The following is adapted from Lucy Moore’s book “Starting from Messy Church” and we hope it will give you a flavour of this exciting new phase in All Saints’ life.
Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
Messy Church meets at a time that suits people who don’t already belong to a church and usually looks something like this: welcome, craft time, celebration or worship, meal. Most meet monthly (although some are more occasional) and last about 2 hours.
Messy Church is a church for all people at all stages of their faith journey (including way behind the starting line!) and of any age. It’s for families of all sizes and shapes (including families of 1).
Messy Church explores the Bible through activities and story and provides opportunities for people to socialise and enjoy a meal together.
Messy Church started in 2004 in an Anglican Church in Portsmouth and is now enjoyed in churches all over the UK, Europe and the world! With Messy Church we will be trying to be a worshipping community of all ages, centred on Christ, showing Christian hospitality – giving people a chance to express their creativity, to sit down together to eat a meal and have fun within a church context.
