Messy Church

What is Messy Church?


“A way of being church for families involving fun.
A church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour.”

Messy Church…
is found across the world and values being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.


Here at Diocesan House we have a collection of books and resources that have been published by BRF on Messy Church. All are available to borrow on request. Email Gemma for more details. We also have publicity leaflets to hand out in parishes and a subscription to the new monthly magazine Get Messy.
