Messy Church is real church, but loads of fun. We spend about 45 minutes “getting messy” with arts and craft activities of every description as well as games and sports challenges while we explore the afternoon’s theme. Then we come together for a short time of worship, with music and drama, as we think about the theme and have a look at what we’ve made. We finish off having tea together. It’s a chance to sit down, relax and chat — adults and children alike.
