Messy Church

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.
