Messy Church is church with a difference ... in fact, lots of differences.  It's for all ages, but especially for families with young children.  We have arts and crafts to start with - a chance for everyone to have fun and be creative, with a toy area for the little ones.  Then we have a short celebration service with singing and a story.  And last - but definitely not least - we serve up food to enjoy together.

Messy Church is:

-  is a way of being church for families involving fun
-  is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour
-  is found across the world
-  values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration
