Messy Church is for children and their parents or carers and now meets only on special occasions such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest time. Our parish Messy Church team, plan and deliver Messy Church. It is a structured event exploring a biblical theme, using crafts, singing and stories to help everyone to understand a little more about living as a Christian in the world. At about 11:30 we all sit together and have some food, usually sandwiches, cakes and a drink.
We have been doing Messy Church now for about 7 years and recently have decided to limit the times we meet to special events.
Messy Church allows families access to the Church building in a new way and for some, Messy Church is their Church and the only time where they experience Christian teaching and discussion. We have actively encouraged those who come to feel like a Messy Church family and as such become very much part of the whole Church family in Swalwell.
Messy Church is for everyone and during our time together we think about Jesus, how he lived, what he did, why he died and how he can be part of our lives today. We would be pleased to see you and you are assured of a very warm welcome.
