Messy Church is a fantastic part of our church family here at St John’s. Messy Church -is a church service and activity time filled with fun, games, crafts, singing and food! (We have a basket for donations to help cover the cost of food, we suggest £1 per person but no family pays more than £4.) Messy Church is a national phenomenon but here at St. John’s we think our Messy is very special! It has been growing and growing and we now run two types of Messy Church services on alternate months.
Our ‘Messy Church‘ services takes place on Saturdays from 3:00-5:30pm. We start in church where we look at the theme for the day, sing some songs and have an interactive Bible story. Then we have free time around the church building to go and do some of the different crafts and games we have set out. We then gather back in church to look at what we have done and think about how our theme affects us. Finally, we head into the hall to share a wonderful hot meal together.
Our ‘Mini Messy Church‘ service takes place on Sundays from 4:00-5:30pm. Our shorter service takes place around tables in the hall. We do a lot of the same things, such as songs, crafts, interactive Bible stories around a theme. It is equally as fun and exciting but slightly shorter and on a different day! We finish our afternoon with light refreshments.
We’d love to welcome you and your entire family to our Messy Church family.
