Reflecting on our Messy Churches

Posted by Martyn Payne on 01 Sep 2017 (0 comments)

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.
