Support

Welcome to Dorothy Hughes, new Messy Church Regional Coordinator for North/West Melbourne in Victoria, Australia!

Dorothy supports Messy Church in her role as Children and Families Ministry Facilitator for the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne. She is the sixth member of the growing team of Regional Coordinators in Victoria. 

Welcome April Gunn, who is the third member of the new Ireland Regional Coordinators' team! April will be supporting Messy Churches in the Munster Province. She coordinates the Messy Church at Blarney, near Cork, and is keen for any Messy Churches in her region to contact her for prayers and sharing.

An update from Carol Brown at Winlaton Messy Church, Tyne & Wear, who was determined to carry on with their Messy Church after fire destroyed their church hall.

A new Messy Church registration from Switzerland made us smile as we read about their Messy journey and unusual choice of logo.

Please pray for Carol Brown and her Messy Church team at St Paul's Messy Church, Winlaton, Tyne & Wear NE21, as they endeavour to continue with their Messy Church after fire destroys their hall, using a smaller space at the rear of the building and ordering in PortaloosTM!

Carol says:

Planning, setting up, running and then clearing up after Messy Church is hard work! It's usually so full on that finding time in all that busyness to pray can be a challenge. In a recent short video clip about prayer Lucy, Jane and I talked about this and made some suggestions which we hope were helpful.

Welcome Ruth Mathews! Ruth is the latest member of the new Regional Coordinator team in Ireland. Team leader Revd Robert Ferris is delighted to share the support needed for the Messy Churches in this beautiful part of the world. Ruth coordinates a Messy Church in Mountmellick Methodist Church, Co. Laois, and a Messy Church at St John's Church of Ireland, Coolbanagher, Co. Laois. 

Please contact Ruth if you are already involved or hope to be starting a Messy Church in the Leinster Province region. 

Welcome to Karen Morgan, the latest member of the Victoria Regional Coordinator team in Australia. Karen will be assisting Tracey Davies in the Geelong region and continues to coordinate her Messy Church at Western Heights Uniting Church.
