For adults & children alike, Messy Church is primarily designed for people who often don’t manage to a church already. Many people already have other activities such as sport at times when traditional church services take place.
Invites are to be issued to youngsters throughout the village through local schools and public facilities, encouraging them to come along for a fun evening of food, craft & play, as well as an introductory message to a biblical theme, through story, prayer, song and games.
Adults remain with their youngsters throughout the session, sharing a meal & involvement in activities. Messy church is also modelled around the family; nuclear, extended & church families, both local & global, encouraging friendship & fellowship.
Members are encouraged to invite friends, family and neighbours along to Bothwell Parish’s first full Messy Church on Monday 15th June, from 6-8pm, with food served at 6pm.
From August, Messy Church will run on the third Monday of each month.
