Messy Church at St Martin's






Since 2011 we have had Messy Church

events and yes we get a bit

'messy' but there’s water and towels

to clean us up too!   Messy Church 

began in Portsmouth by Lucy Moore,

and has spread throughout Great

Britain and even to other countries

 around the world.

Messy Church takes place every 3rd Saturday of each month. The aim of Messy Church is to encourage children and parents/carers into church who do not come regularly.


We are in contact with over 30 families with a potential of 60+ children and parents/carers attending if they all came.


Extra volunteers are needed to be helpers for:


• art and craft activities

• tidying up at the end

• talking to the families

• serving teas and coffees


You would not have to organise an activity (unless you would like to) but to be an extra pair of hands starting at 9.45am for 10.00am start and finishing by 1.00pm (11.45am if you can’t stay for lunch). You don’t have to do it every month, but when you can.



Next Messy Church date is: 




Please put the date in your diary and please pray for Messy Church:


• the families who come;

• more helpers;

• the teaching about Jesus;

• and the team of helpers that they may help the children and adults learn more about faith in our Loving Heavenly Father.


In John 4 v35, Jesus said: “I tell you open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”


If you are able to help, please speak Martin or me.
