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.

1st September 2024. "Little Me, Big God"

After the summer break, our 2024-25 Messy Church Season begins on Sunday 1st September with the theme "Never too little". Jesus was upset when people tried to exclude little children, and wants us to know that we are never too little to be welcomed by him.
There will be lots of little things to make and see - and one or two big things too!

Come and join us at 4pm for painting, modelling, gluing and creating, before we head up into church for a worship session including two very apt songs about God's love for both little and big! We finish our time eating together - with Andersons sausages and mash, and some yummy cake.
See you in September!!

Future dates:

October 6th:The Man Who Would not be Quiet!
