Messy Church

What is Messy Church?

  • A new way of ‘doing’ church for people of all ages

  • Quality time together for the whole family

  • A relaxed and informal gathering

  • Church that embraces creativity, hospitality, and celebration

When and where do we meet?

We will run Messy Church in 2022 (Dates to be advised), in the hall behind the church on 1A Balwyn Rd, Canterbury. You can also enter via the path alongside 2 Boronia St, Canterbury.

What happens at Messy Church?

Messy Church starts off in the hall with a wide range of fun (and messy) activities. We then head into the church for ‘Together Time’ where we learn about God through stories, songs, videos, puppets and drama. We finish back in the hall with a meal together – no need to feed hungry kids when you get home!

Why Messy?

Messy… because it describes each one of us! No-one is perfect and we all lead messy lives for many reasons.

Messy… implies doing messy activities! While there are some messy activities, these are entirely optional and there are plenty of non-messy activities too.

Messy… because our program includes spontaneity.

Is there a cost?

It is a free event for all ages, however donations are welcome to help cover the cost of food/activity materials (suggested donation: $5/person or $10/family).
