Hello Messy Church families,
In place of gathering, we continue to share this fun and easy resource for doing “Messy Church at Home” with your family.
Our theme for the month of June is based on the story of Pentecost and 1 Corinthians 12:13. The activities, stories, songs and prayer provide you with ways to explore the story of the Holy Spirit coming to be with us and to celebrate the birthday of the Church. I encourage your family to choose a day that works for you to try the activities, read the story and pray together. Let me know how it goes!

God’s love in an accessible way…
At Messy Church, today’s busy families of all shapes and sizes are invited into a welcoming space to experience faith. Messy Church meets once a month. Everyone is welcomed as they are. Whether you are single or partnered, young or old, tidy or messy, have questions or doubts, are filled with joy or struggling with life, you will be welcomed at Messy Church.
MESSY CHURCH IS FUN
All ages gather to engage in activities, crafts and games that bring the month’s biblical story to life.
MESSY CHURCH IS FAITH
Following the activities and crafts, all ages join in short celebration with an interactive bible story, music and prayer.
MESSY CHURCH IS FOOD
Each Messy Church concludes with a meal. Sitting at a table with new and old friends, sharing the stories of our real and messy lives!
Why is it called “Messy Church”?
Lucy Moore, the founder of Messy Church writes that the name was an invitation to “reach families that were on the ‘messy edges’ of church who weren’t ‘tidily’ congregation already. It’s also a church for people whose lives may be messy – perhaps in the past the Church has too often appeared to be saying that we only welcome people whose lives are well-ordered.”
(Lucy Moore, BBC Songs of Praise, 2013)
