Welcome to Messy Church

Aln and Coastland Messy Church extends a warm welcome to everyone, especially families

Messy Church

We have taken the sad but necessary decision to suspend Messy Church until further notice.

 

Messy Church:

  • is a way of being church for families involving fun
  • is found across the world
  • values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration

 

Everyone is invited!

Young and old alike!
Adults, children, teenagers, carers, grandparents. Come as friends, families or partners, or come on your own,
If you are a child you will need to bring an adult with you!

Just come! No charge! Can’t make 3:30—don’t worry just come when you can

Messy Church is our Family Church and it meets once per month in Lebury Village Hall at 3.30pm until 5.45pm (including a Meal !!!). 

 

Messy Church values are:

Christ-centred
Messy Church is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

All-age
It is for adults and children to enjoy together - every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.

Creativity
It uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.

Hospitality
It reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church, providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive. Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together – whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, or sausage and mash.

Celebration
It reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.

Thought of the Week

If we understand suffering to be whenever we are not in control, then we see why some form of suffering is absolutely necessary to teach us how to live beyond the illusion of control and to give that control back to God and the flow of reality.
