St Peter’s Church, Cogenhoe


Messy Church


April 2015

Please join us for a Messy Afternoon of Fun.

We meet on the first Wednesday in the month during term time. Our last meeting this term is on Wednesday, 4 March in Cogenhoe Primary School Hall from 3.30 – 5.30pm. Come and join us!

Messy Church is an informal get together for families with pre-school and primary aged children.

We start at 3.30 with a drink and a biscuit for all. There are then a range of activities for all the family to be involved in based on a theme, ending in informal worship where we draw together what we have learned from our activities before we eat together.

We meet again on 6 May in Cogenhoe Primary School Hall from 3.30 – 5.30pm. Our theme is Messy Communion! We are going to ask each child to make a square for our altar cloth using fabric crayons and felt. We are planning to make candles for our altar and bread to share. The children can use the spare dough to make pizzas for their tea. We are going to squeeze grapes to make some juice to represent the wine and decorate glasses to represent the chalice.

Come and join us! Be creative! Have time to worship and then eat together.

£1 per person – includes tea/coffee for parents, all activities and the meal.

If you would like more information please ring Lesley on 01604 891185 or email.


Messy Church is ten years old.  

What began in April 2004, in Cowplain near Portsmouth, as one congregation has since been joined by 2342 others worldwide.  

This fresh expression of church life builds upon Christ-centred elements of welcome, creativity, sharing food and celebration.  Most Messy Churches meet monthly, at a time that suits the community.  They seek to share Christ with families for whom traditional or inherited forms of church life feel alien to their experiences.
