St Peter’s Church, Cogenhoe


Messy Church


January 2015

Please join us for a Messy Afternoon of Fun.

We meet on the first Wednesday in the month during term time. Our meetings this term are on Wednesdays, 4 February and 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 and an introduction to the theme for the afternoon. There are then a range of activities for all the family to be involved in based on that theme.

Come and spend some quality time with your family. Be creative! Have time to worship and then eat together.

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

In December our activities were based around the Christmas story. We made some magnificent angels out of plastic bottles, some cheeky sheep puppets from old black socks, gift tags for our presents, paper chains to decorate the house and a festive table decoration. Do you remember folding paper to make a ‘Fortune teller’? Liz designed one for us to make to tell the Christmas story. We thought about the shepherds out on their cold hillside when we drank some Hot Chocolate at the end of our 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.
