Messy ChurchAugust 31, 2015
Messy Church is a different way of “doing” or “being” church. Its focus is to work with all ages who have an opportunity to explore Bible stories through craft, story and song and finishing with a meal together. The session lasts between 1½ to 2 hours and does not need too many volunteers to run it. However because the idea is that a family moves through the different crafts together, there is not such a great need for the same numbers of volunteers as running a holiday club: the family adults are responsible for their own. The crafts, song and story and the meal all follow the same biblical theme.
Messy Church does not run as the 11am Sunday service but operates at a time and day which is suitable for as many people as possible. We hope to run Messy Church over a number of months and are exploring the possibility of being in Laurieknowe Primary School as well as in the Church.
