Messy Church is an exciting, hands-on, interactive alternative way to worship for anyone not able to, or interested in, attending Sunday worship experiences. It is an informal worship that addresses everyday life issues and includes a shared meal. It is intended for people of all ages. Have kids, love kids, miss kids; this is for you.
One night a month when dinner is all taken care of – nothing to purchase, make, order or worry about.
Instead everyone gets to enjoy making crafts, building, doing activities, singing songs, playing games, learning about a loving God and sharing a meal. It’s a fun time for conversations with people of all ages and backgrounds. It’s a great place to build community with each other and a relationship with God.
Join the fun. Eat together. Make new friends. Make a mess!
Messy Church is a different way to experience God, friends and church.
It happens once a month on the third Saturday of the month.
It’s for all ages and stages – young families with children, couples, singles, teens, middle-aged folks or seniors.
All are welcome.
