Messy Church is an all age gathering where all are welcome. Children and their parents have the opportunity to explore Bible stories in a creative and fun way with activities, crafts, stories and songs. Messy Church is free and family friendly. Food is also included.
Because of the coronavirus restrictions we have been unable to meet recently. But schools now use online services to support their pupils at home, so why not Messy Church? For the foreseeable future we plan to produce a Messy Church every month and put it up on our St Michael's and St Mary's YouTube channel. The June Messy Church can be found there now
In addition to our locally produced material, there are a lot of Messy Church resources available online, some of which are listed below
There is a good range of resources at https://www.messychurch.org.uk/resources/messy-church-home-ideas, including some fun family prayer times. Obviously this will require you to make it happen, but why not make it a family activity, or even part of RE homework?!
If you are looking for something else, we recommend:
Engageworship.org who produce daily family worship activities
[email protected] Weekly Sheets – video storytelling, reflection and creative responses split into different age groups
Illustrated Ministry weekly resources for children – ideal for those who love colouring (high tech colouring!) and puzzles. Free!
Kids Church Online with high energy worship, games, competitions and Bible reflections.
In the meantime keep safe and sane and let us know at [email protected] if we can help with anything or pray for anything.
