Messy Church

The Old Independent Messy Church

We currently run Messy Church events during most school holidays, 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.  We conclude with a short story or teaching, which is then followed by refreshments for everyone in the Church hall.

A quick thank you to everyone who attended the Messy Christingle in December, it was such a successful event that we were also able to make a donation to both our own church and the Children’s Society, who provide resources for Christingle events.   Our next event is: –

Tuesday 18th February: Messy Church – God’s Love 

Come along and enjoy free craft activities with your child.  We will share a story about God’s Love to end the session, and refreshments will be available in the Church Hall as usual.      Children must be supervised by a responsible adult for the whole session.

Time: 10:00am to 12:00 midday

At: Old Independent Church, Hamlet Road, Haverhill.
