What is Messy Church?
We held our first Messy Church in April 2015 and have several more planned throughout the year. This fun filled event involves creativity, celebration and hospitality i.e. Food, food and more food! We aim to involve everyone in Messy Church and therefore you do not need to be a member of a church to attend. Messy Church is especially designed to reach out to families including those for whom Sunday morning services is difficult due to a variety of reasons such as family circumstances.
What happens at Messy Church?
Each Messy Church has a different story theme taken from the Bible. You will find out more about the story through craft, mess and celebration time. The session finishes with some yummy food (Homemade traybakes if you are lucky!) and time to chat!
Saturday 28th September 2019 from 2pm to 4pm, Panmurefield Baptist Centre- We will hear about some friends of Jesus and we’ll explore our theme through crafts, activities, songs and some food. Messy Church is suitable for a wide range of ages, from around age 3-11 and younger siblings are very welcome to take part in what they can or play with some toys.
Book a space by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Children must be accompanied by an adult and we look forward to seeing you then.
