You are welcome to take home anything you’ve made at Messy Church
There is NO COLLECTION – but you may make a financial contribution if you wish.
Who is it for?
There is a focus on families, but really it is for ANYONE! It is a church ‘service’, but perhaps not like one you’ve been to before. You would be most welcome to come and give it a try.
Each week there will be a theme which helps us to understand more about:
God and Jesus
What it means to be a Christian disciple
We are all at different points in our journey of faith from ‘just looking’ to ‘devoted disciple’ and so we aim to keep things simple and try to avoid ‘church jargon’.
