Messy Church at home ideas

Ideas for leaders to send to Messy Church families so that they can do their own activities at home

Messy Church at home - April-June downloadable sessions

Once a week, between Easter and the end of June, we'll be providing a scheduled Messy Church at home session. This is to provide a backstop if you don't have time or the energy to create your own 'at home' resources. The idea is to help you stay in touch with your families while churches are in lockdown,  save you time scouring the range of resources across the web and to provide resources that reflect the Messy Church values as far as possible. They will be in a variety of formats but all appropriately worded for households rather than church leaders to use.
