Messy Church
Messy Church - Sunday 25th October 2020 - Back to the Church Hall!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

Messy Church Sunday 25th October:

We have (unless the Government changes its guidance on places of worship) plans in place to reopen Messy Church on the 4th Sunday of October (25th). Because there will be restrictions we will need people to book places. Philippa has kindly agreed to register people and take their details. Contact her at

We are planning 2 sessions back to back (6 families per session) - 10:00-10:45am and 11:15-12:00noon. Watch out for a leaflet coming soon.

Resources here.....


Take care and stay safe,

Messy Blessings,

Ruth Gray

Normally Messy Church (on hold for the moment) meets in Clifton Church hall on the fourth Sunday of every month at 10:30 a.m. The group is open to all Families with children. The many activities enjoyed include crafts, songs, stories and prayers. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
