In her book ‘Messy Church’ Lucy Moore writes thus of Messy Church,
“A time when families come together to enjoy being together, making things together, eating things together and celebrating God together through His word, through music and through prayer”
“An event for children and their parents/carers together”
“To introduce people to Jesus through hospitality, friendship, stories and worship”
It is a ‘Fresh Expression’ of church where a horseshoe of chairs surrounds a mat strewn with cushions and pillows where people are encouraged to feel relaxed and at ease; free to sit, lie or even walk around.
Here at Epworth Wesley Memorial Methodist Church we meet for Messy Church on the first Saturday of most months.
