Messy Church

Messy Church is a fun and down-to-earth “way in” to church and the Christian faith, aimed particularly at children and their families. Messy Church began in the early 2000s, spearheaded by Lucy Moore.  The aims are to be creative, learn, have fun, worship, pray and celebrate God’s love together.

Each session involves simple craft activities and games based around a particular aspect of the Christian faith or a story from the Bible. The experience is designed to be relaxed with no pressure to have to do everything. Sessions end with songs, a story and simple prayer, followed by a simple meal.

We currently have Messy Church groups at:

William Temple, Wythenshawe

Withington: St Paul’s, St Christopher’s & Withington Methodist Church
