Messy Church is not a new way of doing Church, it is in fact a well tried and tested way of; showing & sharing the christian message of love and hope.
So what is it? It's christian, that has to be said at the outset, there is music, there is inter action, fast, fun based story lines, all of which transform into a great deal of creativity! Every Messy church service we do at St Andrew's, we do them on the 5th sunday of every month that has 5 sundays, and those we do in the summer holidays, all have different themes, but a similar format; worship, story, highly visual and interactive starts, then about 40 minutes of creative expression based on the service theme.
It's a lot of fun, appeals to all age's, give a chance for those who don't get the more formal traditional approach to hearing the good news, a chance to see it for themselves in a real practical way.
Our next one is at the end of this month, why not pop in and give it a go, we'd love to see you
