Messy Church is a national initiative which comes under the banner of Fresh Expressions of Church. It is used successfully by churches of all denominations to provide an alternative to families who may be unable to ,or who do not wish to, attend church services on a Sunday.

Here at Moulsham we tend to hold a Messy Church every 6-8 weeks and they take place in our church hall on a Wednesday afternoon. We begin at 3.30pm and end at 5.00pm. As the children arrive they help themselves from a buffet of food and drink and there is plenty of tea or coffee for the adults (and food too if they so wish!). We then have a short time in the church where the children listen to a Bible story (or watch one on our large screen) and sing a song or two. Then we have a session of crafts, including cookery and sometimes games, for 3/4 of an hour. All of the crafts are themed around the Bible story they have just heard. Adults are encouraged to join in with their children &/or to chat to other parents and the helpers. Afterwards we all meet together in the church for a song and prayer before going home.


All are welcome. At present the children’s ages range from 2-15 and the adults may be mums, dads, grandmothers (we’ve had no grandfathers yet!), aunts or friends.

Please watch this space for an invitation to our next Messy Church.


Latest invitation

Hello Everyone,

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and may we wish you a happy and peaceful New Year.

It seems ages since we made Christingles and sang Away in a Manger in candlelight.  Richard has taken some lovely pictures and hopefully they will be on the wall for you to see at our next Messy Church.

Talking of which - this will take place on Wednesday 25th January at 3.30 in the church hall. 

There's a story in the Old Testament, the first part of the Bible, about a donkey who talks.  We couldn't find a real live talking donkey but we've got the next best thing!  Come along and see, you could well be in for a laugh.

All our crafts, except one but including the adult craft, are donkey based.  There will be the usual food and drink, puzzle sheets to take home and, oh, nearly forgot, a party game with a prize (adults, you can probably guess what that is!!)

We hope you can all come and join us.

Look forward to seeing you there.

The Messy Church Team.

Future Messy Church dates:

Wednesdays, 12th April and 31st May 2017
