Messy Church

The Old Independent Messy Church

We currently run Messy Church events during every school holiday, except for the Summer holidays.   Children must be accompanied by an adult please. 

At Messy Church events we have a range of free activities and crafts based on a particular theme for children of all ages.   Our theme in February half term was ‘God’s Love’ and crafts
included making heart tea light lanterns, a handheld mirror to show the reflection of who God loves, heart bingo, love mobiles and of course the ever popular icing of heart shaped biscuits and cakes. 

We conclude our morning of fun with a short story or teaching, which is then followed by refreshments for everyone in the Church hall.

Some examples of our themes:

  • Christingle and Christmas
  • The Lost Sheep
  • The Two Builders
  • Love and Forgiveness – The Prodigal Son
  • Love thy neighbour – The Good Samaritan
