Messy Church

Fresh ideas for building a Christ-centred community

Meet the Messy Church team

Lucy MooreLucy Moore was in the team that started the first Messy Church. She works for BRF as the Messy Church team leader. She is responsible for developing the work of Messy Church nationally and internationally – writing, speaking, reflecting and developing Messy projects. She continues to help lead the local Messy Church in her own church.

Before working full-time with Messy Church, Lucy was a member of BRF's Barnabas team, offering training for those wanting to bring the Bible to life for children in churches and schools across the UK, and using drama and storytelling to explore the Bible with children.

Her books include the Messy Church series, Bethlehem Carols Unpacked, The Gospels Unplugged, The Lord's Prayer Unplugged, Topsy Turvy Christmas, Colourful Creation and All-Age Worship (all published by BRF) and she also presents the Messy Church DVD.

A secondary school teacher by training, she enjoys acting, walking Minnie the dog, enjoying her family of an archdeacon and two adult children and reading eclectically.

Jane LeadbetterJane Leadbetter is the Messy Church team member with special responsibility for the team of Regional Coordinators. She is a former primary school teacher. She was also Children's Work Adviser in the Diocese of Liverpool for twelve years, where she now works from home and coordinates L19: Messy Church and L19: Who Let The Dads Out? monthly on Saturdays. Her passions are all-ages worshipping together and community and church connections.

Jane's voluntary work includes leading a weekly Beaver Scout colony, and she is Assistant County Commissioner (ACC) Beaver Scouts in Merseyside Scouts. She is married to Ian, has two grown-up children, three young grandsons and Bonnie an adopted dog. Brought up in the Midlands, she now feels Liverpool has adopted her as a real scouser! She has written Messy Nativity, Messy Easter, Messy Prayer and co-authored Messy Christmas.
