IMORTANT NEWS ABOUT MESSY CHURCH AT St JOHN’s
After 8 years and with over 120 children involved over that time, we have decided that we are no longer able to offer Messy Church at St John’s. This is partly because the planning team members are getting older but also because we are losing a number of participants who will be going to secondary school and fall out of the age range for Messy Church. Although we do continue to attract new young children our small numbers make it difficult to plan with certainty. Messy Church is available at St Elizabeth’s Church on Saturdays and there is a group available for older children via Churches together.
You can read below all the activities we have enjoyed over the years.
So what’s Messy Church about?
