Welcome to Messy Church

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

Messy Church

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 one per month in the Hindmarsh Hall in Alnmouth 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

““I read in a book that a man called Christ went about doing good. It distresses me that I am so easily satisfied with just going about.” (Toyohiko Kagawa)
