Toilet Twinning Messy Church session

It’s funny how something as earthy and humble as a toilet can be the basis for thinking about God’s limitless love for his people! God’s love longs for the best life possible for every human being. He made us as beings whose spirituality is inextricably linked to our bodies: our relationship with him and with each other, our worship, our well-being – these all work in bodily ways as well as in the realms of the soul or spirit.

Messy Church Southwark Splash

Dunk, splash, ripple… At Southwark Splash on 19 January, we were reminded of some of the sounds that might have been heard as John the Baptist baptised Jesus in the River Jordan, before Bishop Karowei baptised three young Christians. Download the materials they used, which might be helpful if you are thinking of running a similar event.

Messy Palm Sunday

We've had lots of requests about Palm Sunday activities for Messy Church, particularly through our Facebook page. Palm Sunday is a feast that celebrates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem; there were palm leaves and coats on the ground which certainly sounds very Messy!

Messy Unfrozen

The popular Disney film Frozen has prompted quite a few Messy Churches to consider the Christian themes and values of the story about Real love. After many requests for help with ideas on Frozen themes we can now offer you a resource with  twelve activities including Bible verses, craft links, photographs and a short Celebration Time message with a creative prayer. Let us know how this resource works for you! Enjoy Sven cake decorating, sensory play, sock Olafs, troll potatoes and much more. With Jesus you are not frozen but unfrozen!
