Messy Church landed at Christ the King in the Spring of 2019.
It's an interactive All-Age interactive space or service for both children and adults to enjoy together, every part aims to be accessible to all ages.
Messy Church meets on the first Saturday of each Month from 4.00pm until 6.00pm (apart from August). Each time we meet there will be crafts, games, refreshments, songs, stories, and puppets. Each time there is a shared meal provided at the end of the afternoon. Best of all, all the activities and refreshments are provided free of charge.
Many of the resources we use for our Messy Church come from the Messy Church team. They have five core values and we have adopted them as they fit well with our own church values:
All-Age: Messy Church is for both adults and children to enjoy together. Every part aims to be relevant and accessible to all ages.
Jesus is at the centre of all we do and we hope that everyone that comes can encounter him and join in with his adventure
Creativity: Messy Church seeks to reflect the creativity of God in its imaginative hands-on approach each time it meets.
Hospitality: We want to welcome everybody to enjoy the hospitality of our Church family and unconditional Love of God. We want to show this through a good home-cooked meal served to everyone for free every time we meet together.
Celebration: We want to show you how much fun and joy being part of the community Jesus invites us to join and have life in all its fullness.
