There is no doubt that social media can be a great gift to the church and the gospel. Indeed, Messy Church growth owes a lot to its Facebook family of loyal followers; but there can be drawbacks. The pressure to post our stories or tweet our events can sometimes give the impression of an uninterrupted narrative of smiles and success. We don’t so easily make public our failures and disappointments.

I have so enjoyed my many Messy Church visits during these last years with the team… over 200 Messy Church meals, celebrations and journeys all round the UK, alongside at least 100 more opportunities to meet teams and leaders at training events and Messy Meet-ups. What amazing pioneer ministers you all are! I shall miss this so much when I step back from this role in December. But these final months do, I suppose, give me even more excuse to reflect on what God is doing in and through Messy Church, while I am still in the midst of the Mess.
