Messy Church is a way of being church for families based around hospitality,creativity and celebration. It began in 2004 in the UK and has since caught the imagination of churches of all denominations around the world as they try to rethink how to be church for people who have little or no church connection.

This DVD tells the story of Messy Church and explores the issues it raises through conversations with leaders from around the UK and meeting the children and adults who make up the congregations. It can be used to:

  • Introduce the concept of Messy Church
  • Help a new team understand what starting a Messy Church might entail
  • Help an existing team think through some of the important issues faced by leadership teams as the Messy work goes on.

It's fun, it's colourful, it's.... messy...
