What is Messy Church?

Messy Church enables people of all ages to belong to Christ together through their local church. It is a way of being a church which is particularly suited to families, but welcoming to all. It meets at a time and on a day that suits local families and is particularly aimed at people who have never belonged to a church before.
Messy Church is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), a Registered Charity. The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) is the home of Messy Church; it supports, resources and enables its work. BRF is passionate about making a difference through the Christian faith. For more information on the work of BRF, visit brf.org.uk.
Christ-centered
Messy Church is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Messy Church believes, with the historic churches, in one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
All-age
Messy Church is for adults and children to enjoy together. Every element should be relevant and accessible to all ages.
Creativity
Messy Church uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together.
Hospitality
Messy Church reflects a God of unconditional love and is a church for people outside church, providing an oasis of welcome and a safe space in which to thrive. Messy Church is about hospitality, expressed most evidently by eating together – whether it’s a plate of sandwiches to share, or sausage and mash.
Celebration
Messy Church reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness.
