St Francis United Church has started an exciting new concept called “Messy Church”, a fun Sunday evening that takes place on a monthly basis, involving good food, creativity and a biblical lesson. The first two have proved a great success for all involved.
Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a meal together. All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults.
