On Saturday 22 May 2021, we had a fun altogether national gathering of Messy people from all over the UK (and possibly a few overseas friends…). We took part in some inspiring Messions, finishing back together with a warm and wonderful gathering. After a leisurely break for lunch, we clocked in again in the afternoon for a short and magnificent celebration on YouTube with our families, with our Messy Church families or simply with a pint of cider/cup of chai as we took part in the Great Big Messy Church! Was it the biggest Messy Church ever?

Mession resources

There were 22 inspiring Messions on the day. Below you will find some resources from some of the Messions, in case you couldn't take part or want to revisit the topic.
