What makes it Messy?

  • It’s not on a Sunday –it’s for families who don’t fit that traditional pattern of being able to get up and go to church on a Sunday morning.
  • It’s literally messy! Many people big and small, prefer to learn through doing, rather than listening.
  • It’s for people who aren’t all sorted and secure in their beliefs – for families who might feel a strong sense of God being there, but they’re not sure: they’d like to explore more together. And it’s also for any family that enjoys having fun together during the week in worship as well as on a Sunday.

Facilities: baby changing, accessible loo and level access.
