What is Messy Church?
Messy Church is a time when families come together to enjoy being together, making things together and celebrating God together through his word, through music and through prayer. It's different from a children's activity day because it's an event for children and their carers or parents together, and it's more than a local authority fun day because of the element of worship that underpins it all.
With Messy Church we are trying to be a worshipping community of all ages, centred on Christ, showing Christian hospitality - giving people a chance to express their creativity, share fellowship and have fun in a church context.
Our principles, in no particular order are:
* To provide an opportunity for people of all ages to worship together
* To help people of all ages to feel that they belong in church and to help each other
* To help people have fun
*To give people a chance to express their God-given creativity
*To invite people into an experience of Christian community
*To introduce people to Jesus through hospitality, friendship, stories and worship.
