Our next Messy Church will be held on

Suspended until further notice.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Why not join us on the next one, it is free and fun.

Look in our calendar for the future dates.


At our Messy Church held on 2nd February 2020, we had a change of format.
At the start we all came together to enjoy a power point presentation by Ben Travis which included two songs about light. Then the children and their carers enjoyed various crafts on the theme of light. They made lighthouses, candle holders, candle crowns, jig jag candles and sun pictures thinking of how we can be light to other people.
Rev. Catherine then told us how Jesus was taken to the Temple when he was 40 days old and presented to God. An old man called Simeon met him and prophesied that he would be a light to lighten the Gentiles/ non Jews and the glory of his own Jewish people.
Then everyone enjoyed sandwiches, cakes and drinks.
Again thanks to our faithful helpers and especially to Ben and his Mum Joanne.

St Michael and All Angels

Our 29th September 2019 Messy Church was based around the theme of "St Michael and All Angels".


Reverend Catherine told a story about how God's angels protect people, rescue people, answer prayers and give messages to people. Out of her story box came the figures of Mary, Joseph and the Angel.

Mary was told by the Archangel Gabriel that she would have a son Jesus.

Our Messy Church for Father's Day (17/06/2018) gave us an opportunity to make cards, rosettes and to draw things for our fathers enjoy, but also to think about God , our Heavenly Father.

We made people to stick around a picture of the World to remind us that God is Father to us all. In our talk we remembered that God loves us all, wants the best for us all.

We sang about Father Abraham who is the father of the people of God / the church and said the Lord's Prayer together.

Then we enjoyed sandwiches, jelly and cake.
