The background

MESSY CHURCH is a form of celebration for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It typically involves a welcome; a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables. For further information phone 0161 485 3455.

Very successful services have been held at approximately three monthly intervals since March 2014.

Messy Church is held in the church starting at 4 pm and lasts for just over an hour with food served afterwards in the meeting room.
