Messy Church

Fresh ideas for building a Christ-centred community


Great to hear from Rev Carol Meredith at St Stephens Episcopal Church, Aurora, Colorado. Since July 2014 they have been joining up with their Latino neighbours for Messy Church and at Christmas they all explored Mexican Christmas traditions together. 

First, 150 all ages celebrated Our Lady of Guadalupe, making rosaries, paper flowers and Christmas ornaments to decorate a special Altar to Our Lady. They had Mexican dancers and food.

It's amazing when and where God speaks to you! even when making Shepherds pie for tea!

That's when the idea for our Family Fun Day in Seascale was born, and after months of prayer preparation and planning, Wednesday 14th August dawned bright and sunny after days of cloud, rain and Cumbrian weather!

Fun fun fun for all the family on Saturday 27th April. Children, mums/dads and grandparents - the children brought the story of Noah to life in pictures, paintings and created a cardboard Ark - then songs and stories about Noah.

We had over 40 young people, a record for us - so rewarding seeing their happy smiling faces, and giving the parents time to relax with them having fun.
