Aimed at people at the early stage of their faith journey

Messy Church is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) which supports, resources and enables its work. It is a way of being church especially suited to families but welcoming to all. Messy Church is worldwide and in all denominations. The values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Messy Churches meet at a time and on a day that suits local families and is particularly aimed at people who have never belonged to a church before. When attending a Messy Church, you can expect a warm welcome, an hour of different hands-on activities with a Bible theme, a short gathered celebration with story, song and prayer, a meal together and it’s usually once a month.
