CHURCH, but not as you know it!!


What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is held at St. Andrew Blackadder once a month on a Sunday afternoon from 4-6pm. It’s a form of church for children and adults and an opportunity to have fun together through creativity, activity, and celebration.

It’s relaxed, family fun and above all – MESSY!!

Messy Church is all-age event, families are encouraged to come together, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Those without children are very welcome too!

What happens at Messy Church?

Messy Church is two hours long. The first hour is spent doing crafts and activities together, based on a Christian theme. This is followed by a Celebration Time in the Church and then we share a meal together in the hall.

There is no cost, but donations are accepted. Free-from meal options are always available.

15th June - special event

Instead of Messy Church taking place in Church, we will be participating in the Church weekend which is held at Scoughall Scripture Union Camp EH39 5PP,  3 miles outside North Berwick towards Dunbar. The Messy Church family are invited to attend on the afternoon of Saturday 15th June. If you are interested in attending (and we would be delighted to see you), please contact Alison, one of the Messy Church leaders, to find out more. 

Our website has more details about Scoughall and you can see photographs.
