Messy Church is a “Fresh Expression Church” involving interaction between family members, friends, parents, children, and grandparents. It is a new way to experience church.
Most Messy Churches are held once a month and they focus on a theme each month. Messy Churches are more informal than most Sunday morning services.
A typical Messy Church starts with a welcoming time to chat with friends, then an introduction of the theme and some singing of action songs associated with the theme. A considerable amount of information about the theme is presented through the creative crafts and then there is a Bible story with a discussion and/or an action play followed by a prayer related to the theme. Once the celebration is over, we join in fellowship for a lovely dinner.
