Messy Church in Abbotskerswell

Messy Church

We usually hold a Messy Church usually on the first Thursday of most school holidays.  We meet in Church House usually starting at 10:00.  The next Messy Church will be held in October 2018. We will meet in August to decide the theme.

Each session has a theme which will reflect the Church calendar for Christmas, Easter and Pentecost and will cover more general themes on the other occasions (e.g. Feeding the 5,000).

Over the years, we have had many, happy well-attended Messy Church get togethers. Our themes have included Mr. Noah, making animal masks, rainmakers, rainbows and animals and a huge ark from cardboard boxes. When it was the Olympics the emphasis was on teamwork and when it was the flower festival in church we contributed flowers, butterflies, animals and rainbows.

In the first Messy Church of 2017, our theme was "Treasure" when we heard from Matthew 17 verses 14 to 16 about priceless pearls and treasure in a field. 

Our Easter theme was “a God of forgiveness”. 

In 2018, the theme for February 15th was "New Beginnings", for Easter was "The Easter Story" and for May it was "Feeding the 5000".

Messy Church is for people of all ages and everyone is welcome. We hope to see you there.
