"Messy Church" at Emmanuel Methodist Church.

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, families and people of all ages, come together at 3.45pm to have tea and cakes and celebrate God together.
The vision of "Messy Church" is to use creativity and food as a way of helping people come closer to God and each other.

This is a fresh approach to connect with families, not just on a Sunday. Whilst having fun together, we have a chance to get messy and express ourselves creatively and at the same time, be introduced to Jesus through hospitality, friendship, stories and worship. All ages get to feel that they belong in church and to each other.
