Messy Church

NEXT MESSY CHURCH is on Tuesday January 9th

MESSY CHURCH is a way for families who might want to meet Jesus, belong to their local church and bring up their children as Christians but do not choose to attend a Sunday morning church service.  St Mark's Messy Church is led by Liz Townsend.

Messy church is a family time of creativity, fun and faith where we explore together a bible theme through crafts, games, prayer and a short service and then we eat tea!

At Messy Christmas we heard the story of the Grumpy Innkeeper and got creative around the theme of Christmas carols.   Here is the newsletter from Messy Christmas.

This is Messy Mark.  He comes to every Messy Church.  Each month he goes home with a different family.

As Messy Church is church that only meets once a month we are trying to encourage and nurture faith at home. The families have made prayer boxes and each month we provide something to add to their prayer box to help  encourage them to talk, pray or have a faith exploring activity together. Messy Mark is part of this new faith adventure and the family he goes home with gets a copy of Mark’s gospel to keep and they can read it and ask any questions about it in the diary provided. Messy Mark may go to school with them or on any outings. In his shoulder bag he carries the diary but also leaflets so he can give out information about Messy Church to any who ask.
