Messy Church

Messy Church is for families with primary school-aged children. It runs once a month on a Saturday afternoon between 16:00 and 18:00. It is a time to come together to hear Bible stories, sing, dance and make crafts (sometimes messy ones!) while learning about Jesus. We finish the afternoon by sharing a meal together.
