Messy Church – Is a way of being church for families involving fun
Messy Church values are:
Messy Church is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
It is for adults and children to enjoy together – every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.
It uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.
It reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church, providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive. Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together – whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, or sausage and mash.
It reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
