Messy Church

Welcome! We've been running Messy Church at All Saints since June 2010.

For those not familiar with the concept, Messy Church is a mix of craft, art and other creative activities along with a short act of worship. It is intended for all ages.

You can see more about it in this Introductory Video , go for a Walk through Messy Church , and/or hear about how it all started here.

We meet once a month usually on the afternoon of the third Sunday of each month from 16:00 for 1.5 hours to be creative and have fun (Except in August). Our session is always themed and the crafts reflect that theme. So far these have included Creation, the story of Noah, Moving on with God, the Characters of Christmas and the Easter Story.

The children make various things to take home and in most sessions we also try to make a larger work of art to place in Church. You may have seen our Advent calendar figures, as well as our earth, our rainbow and our footsteps. We see these as statements of our faith and hope that you find them meaningful as well as attractive.

After we have finished our craft session, we have a time of worship which brings together all that we have learned during the afternoon. We sing, play instruments, listen to a talk and pray. Finally we all sit down to have tea together.

We have 25 children who regularly attend, along with their parents. We all enjoy being together very much and the informal setting means that we have time and the opportunity to talk and to get to know each other.
