Messy Church is back for the New Year this Sunday (16th January) at John Wesley School, starting at 3pm.

Join us for some messy fun – crafts, activities and worship all around the theme of light. We’ll also sit down to a hot meal together and we’re finishing the afternoon with a glow stick disco!

Please invite friends or family to come along.

Messy Easter

With the current situation we aren’t hosting a Messy Church on Sunday afternoon. So if your little ones enjoy Messy Church, then why not host your own on Sunday. The Messy Church – BRF Facebook group will be online with a story on Sunday 12th April at 5pm. They have provided ideas as well for you to download for a Messy Easter and a Messy Good Friday.

If you want something for this week to replace Sunday’s Messy Church, why not get your little one’s involved in the Eggs and Crosses drive from City Vision. Rather than putting rainbows up in your windows put Eggs and Crosses up.

Alternatively, Churspacious has set a crafty Palm Sunday challenge: make your own palm cross and send in photos of your cross or crosses. This new group, set up by URC ministers, is a place to ‘be church’, whatever that means to you. Search for Churspacious on Facebook or Instagram to find out more.

Messy Church Christingle Service

The Messy Church team, having joined with Great Chart, hosted our second Christingle Messy Church on Tuesday 13th December.  We were joined by about 20 children from the John Wesley Church of England/Methodist Primary School, who kindly hosted the event.  The children made their Christingle and put together a card with information about the Christingle.  Donation boxes for the Children’s Society had been passed round the whole school.
