Messy Church


October 2014

In October we took Harvest as our theme: we made fabric pictures by printing with apples and fabric paint, used potato prints to see how many people we could print into Joshua’s outline. (We were aiming for 5000! We achieved 73), we made our own fruit salad, created our own bread baskets by hollowing out a bread roll and putting in 5 small biscuits and two fizzy fish, created a harvest jig saw for a friend to solve and made some butter for our tea! (Joshua did a lot of shaking to get that cream to turn!)

Our informal worship was based on the story of the Feeding of the 5000.

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

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

If you think you could help at Messy Church or would like more information please ring Lesley on 01604 891185 or email.

Please join us for a Messy Afternoon of Fun.

Held on the first Wednesday of each month from 3.30 – 5.30pm in term time.

We meet next on Wednesday, 5 November In Cogenhoe Primary School Hall. 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.

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

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.
