Messy Church is a fun and down-to-earth “way in” to church and the Christian story for children and their families. We aim to be creative, learn, enjoy ourselves, worship, pray and celebrate God’s love together.
Each Messy Church session involves simple craft activities and games all based around a particular Christian theme or story from the Bible. The experience is designed to be relaxed with no pressure to have to do everything. The sessions end with songs, a story and simple prayer, followed by a simple meal.
Messy Church happens bi-monthly, rotating round St Christopher’s, St Paul’s, and Withington Methodist Churches. Our themes have included:
The Good Shepherd, Seaside Stories, The Christmas Story, Joseph, and God’s Creation.
Our next Messy Churches will be at Withington Methodist Church on Tuesday 30th May at 10.30 a.m. and
St. Christopher’s Withington on 26th July at 10.30 a.m. See you there!
Here’s what we got up to last October……..
