MESSY CHURCH

Messy Church is a different way of 'being church'. From humble beginnings in a single church in Portsmouth in 2004, Messy Church growth has far surpassed our expectations. There are now over 3000 Messy Churches registered in more than 20 different countries - and that's just the ones we know about. We estimate that over 500,000 people attend a Messy Church each month.

Messy Church provides a way for churches to reach out to and engage with those on the fringe of the church family, and has proven to be an effective way of 'being church' in rural, urban and suburban contexts across different denominations and in different countries.
Messy Church values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

MESSY CHURCH WOLVEY

After two years of planning, prayer and sheer hard work on the part of the organizing team Messy Church finally came to Wolvey on the 18th September 2016. 28 Children accompanied by 15 Adults enjoyed an hour of craft activities centred around the theme "Saying Thank You." They then enjoyed a session of Christian celebration ably led by Adrian Warwick assisted by Sallie Fulton, in which the story of the Ten Lepers was narrated. This was followed by an appetising tea before everyone went home. It was a super event and will be repeated on October 16th, then monthly with a different theme each time.

This is a landmark in the development of the churches in the Wolvey Group and Wolvey Baptist chapel, a considerable venture of our reach to the children and young families in our villages.

Further Messy Church Sundays are planned for:
2016: Oct 16th, Nov 13th, Dec 11th
2017: Jan 22nd, Feb 19th and Mar 19th
