What is Messy Church?
Messy Church is not about being untidy, more about being a little less formally structured than the sort of church service you might come to on a Sunday. If you like, it’s more about a hands-on approach to encountering God, and it’s about being able to do this together in active and creative ways. You can come on your own or with somebody else. You can come once or as often as you like. Whoever you are you and whenever you come you will be warmly welcomed.
So when is it on?
Messy Church is on the fourth Saturday of every month, with a break at Christmas and Easter, from 11am to 1pm in the Narthex.
There is a suggested donation of £2 (£1 for under 16s) to cover costs of materials and refreshments.
