'Messy Church' could work for YOU!


Helen Ellis ... keen to share information about Messy ChurchThe Messy Church regional coordinator for Cheshire and Wirral, Helen Ellis (pictured), wants to spread the word about the growing appeal of this form of inclusive and creative worship. Helen has been running a Messy Church at All Saints, Hoole, Chester, for more than two years and has lots of advice, resources and enthusiasm to share.

The events are truly all-age and socially inclusive in scope, involving children, parents, grandparents, all sorts of people. The sessions are aimed largely at people who wouldn’t normally attend a traditional Sunday church service. They usually involve crafts and activities on a Christian a theme, a worship segment, and a shared meal at the end.

During the next six months, Helen plans to run a number of evening sessions for those churches who want to find out what this relatively new form of church is all about and how it can enliven and deepen Christian faith. 

Helen’s sessions will be practical, informative and allow time for questions. She will be showing a number of clips from the Messy Church DVD.

If you are interested in attending one of these an evening sessions or would like Helen to come and talk specifically to your church, please phone her on  07956 398234 or email her ellis.helen@btinternet.com

Messy Church is a multi-denominational movement, founded in 2004 by Anglican priest Lucy Moore. She describes it as “a way of being church for families based around hospitality, creativity and celebration”.
