Messy Church

messy craft compressedMessy Church is our monthly all-age gathering designed to be fun, interactive and friendly. There are craft activities and games based around a biblical theme. We also have a Celebration which includes a Bible story, prayer and music. At this time we are unable to offer food and drink.

We have had to change the way we do things to comply with the new Covid-19 rules and regulations and more importantly, to keep everyone safe. So things will be a bit different for a while - but we hope Messy Church will still be a fun and creative place for everyone to explore faith in Jesus.


Children, please bring and adult with you!
 

Registration

You now need to pre-register in advance of the day, with your email reaching us no later than the Wednesday evening before the Messy Church on the Saturday.

You will need to tell us how many people from your family bubble are attending as well as provide us with your contact details.

Arriving

The doors will open 5 minutes before Messy Church begins.

If you arrive before this time, please wait outside and please maintain a social distance of at least 2 meters between household bubbles.

When the doors open, please wait in an orderly queue as the greeters record your attendance on the Track-and-Trace register. They can also remind you of your allocated table number (as given in the confirmation email).
Please use hand sanitiser provided upon entrance and exit of the building.

Seating

Please go to your allocated table and remain seated there throughout the duration of Messy Church.

Craft materials and equipment needed will already be on each table for you to use.

Parents – you are reminded that your children remain your responsibility at all times. Please do your best to help them remain at your household’s seating area and to maintain social distancing rules.
 

Face Coverings

Government rules as to the use of face coverings within a religious setting will be followed.

Everyone over the age of 11 years old must wear a face covering at all times whilst at Messy Church.

If you have an exemption from wearing a face covering, you MUST notify us of this when you register as extra care will need to be taken with your seating arrangements.

If you forget your face covering, you can purchase one from us of £1 (or be refused entry).

When the service leader is conducting the Celebration, or when craft demonstrators are demonstrating up at the front, they do not need to wear a face covering whilst that activity is taking place.
 

Physical Contact

Please note that hugging, shaking hands or giving high-fives are not allowed within current Covid-19 guidelines. Please maintain a social distance of 2 meters at all times.

 

When?

Once a month on a Saturday from 3:30pm - 4:30pm.

God Questions

God Questions was launched in response to several conversations at our Messy Church where parents were saying that their children were asking lots of questions about God and Jesus that they did not know how to answer them. It then emerged that many of the parents had questions of their own too.

As a result of these initial questions this idea has developed into something bigger. A platform has now been created where anyone - young or old - can ask questions about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, Christianity, church etc.

We take the questions asked and prayerfully consider the best way to answer them. Then we create a video that endeavours to answer the question which you can find on our God Questions page or on our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.
