Messy Church International Conference 2019

Date: Friday, 3 May 2019 - 12:00pm to Sunday, 5 May 2019 - 2:00pm
Venue: High Leigh Conference Centre, Hertfordshire, UK

We had an amazing time at the second Messy Church International Conference (MCIC). This was a fantastic opportunity to learn new approaches and ideas, to be inspired and inspire others, to make new friends and enjoy the company of old ones. It was a gathering of Messy Church practitioners and friends from around the world, from all denominations with stories to share, experiences to pass on and wisdom to build up the Messy network from hugely different countries and cultures.

Watch the highlights!

Messy Church sessions

We had two Messy Church sessions over the weekend. A Rocky Start on Friday looked at Matthew 16:18: ‘You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.’ On Sunday, we used A Slightly Sticky Star in God’s Hand to think about what Jesus might be saying to Messy Church (locally and globally), followed by Communion.
