Messy Church


  • A church for adults and children to enjoy together.
  • It's primarily for people who don't belong to another form of church already.
  • It's all-age. It's fun.
  • Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.
  • It usually includes some creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a celebration time which might involve story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a meal together.
  • Its values are those of hospitality, creativity and celebration.
  • The first one started in Hampshire in 2004.
  • The organisation at the heart of Messy Church is BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship).

Messy Church has been a great success since we introduced it at Menston Methodist Church in 2013.  We have held Messy Easter, Messy Harvest, Messy Olympics and Messy Christmas Churches.
