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

We would very much like to restart it now that restrictions are lessening. In order to make that restart feasible we would need:

People to organise and lead worship (at least 2)
People to organise IT (2)
Arts and crafts leaders (2)
Catering organisers (2)

As well as these people to lead Messy Church we also need people to come and help with the activities, with serving food and with cleaning up.
If you feel you could help in any way could you please contact one of your church wardens and let them know if soon as possible or use the Contact page.



Messy Church values are:

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

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

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

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.

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