In the more than seven years of coordinating L19 Messy Church I have never been on the Messy cooks' team. As we have invited our Messy congregation into the church space for each celebration time, I have marvelled at the way the 'fairies' have transformed the Messy activities church hall into a welcoming dining room for us to return to. More often than not those 'fairies' don't get to worship with us, but instead go into extra hospitality mode and prepare our third space of Messy Church at each session.

When did you last say the Lord's Prayer? It is taught even less these days, even in Uniformed Organisations, schools and church organisations. So is it relevant to our Messy Church families and leaders today?

Reflections from a recent Messy Church visit

No doubt it was because I was deep into Lucy's Messy Hospitality as I travelled to a Messy Church recently that I couldn't help experiencing the visit through the lens of how welcoming everything and everybody was. I was pleased to say this Messy Church scored highly!
