Messy Church – at home

Due to the coronavirus we are not able to hold Messy Church in the normal way. So each month we will put some activity ideas on this site that you can try out at home. The page will be updated just before the second Saturday of each month – in line with our Messy Church dates.

We hope you enjoy the activities – maybe take some photos so you can share them with us when we are back to Messy Church as normal. Stay safe, and we hope to see you very soon.

If you have any questions, please use this contact form, selecting Messy Church.

Jonah Olympics

The Tokyo Olympics may have been postponed, but this month you take part in the Jonah Olympics at home!

God had called Jonah to be a prophet (to tell people what they were doing wrong and to follow God), but Jonah was scared and ran away.  He went on a long journey by sea to run away from God, but then he got caught in a storm – and a whale!

You might like to start by watching this video that tells the story:
