Messy Church is a new way of being church and is found across the world.
It is for people of all ages and is based on welcome and hospitality which is why we at Emmanuel eat breakfast together when we meet on Sunday mornings. Other Messy Churches may meet during the week and have a lunch, tea or evening meal together.
Our Messy church usually meet on the first Sunday of each month from 10:00 am till 12:00 noon with breakfast.
Messy Church is on the second Sunday for this month only and is being combined with the Parade Service.
Please join us at 10am for breakfast at the back of the Church, not in the hall.
The Christmas Parade service will start at 10.30 when we will introduce the theme and then the whole congragation will be invited to spend about 15 minutes doing Messy Church activities. The service will continue with all of us making Christingles together. After the service finishes you will be able to continue with the craft while refreshments are served.
At this Christmas parade service we bring new toys to give to families who struggle to buy gifts. If you are able, please bring a toy or toiletries for parents.
