Messy Church

Cross-Links Messy Church

takes place at St Nicholas’ Church on Fridays from 3.15-5.15pm (term time).  Messy Church is a different sort of church service, with lots of mess and fun!  There is a ‘family-friendly-focus’, but it is suitable for people of any age!

As people arrive there are refreshments and some colouring/quiz sheets introducing our theme.

We start the craft activities around 3.45pm; these help us to explore the theme a bit more.

We then gather together for a short service.  This normally consists of a song, then a story/drama and end with prayers.

Everything is rounded off with a simple 'Bring & Share' meal (sandwiches, savouries, cakes).

You can join in as much or as little as you like - there is no collection, but there is an opportunity to make a donation towards the food and craft materials.

“Messy church is a great opportunity for adults and children to discover Jesus together”


Nigel Collins, Messy Church Leader
