Messy Church – a fun way of being church for families
Fun, Faith, Friendship, Food
- Messy Church is a different form of church for both children and adults. It involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
- We begin with a creative time to explore the biblical theme followed by a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, and games. Then we finish with a sit-down meal together at tables.
- It’s a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age
- Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.
- Holcombe Brook Messy Church usually meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month (though may occasionally vary) between 4.00 and 6.00 pm
- All are welcome, families and single people, all ages, Children do need to bring an adult with them!
IT’S GOOD TO TALK
Many Christians struggle with prayer; many Christians feel guilty about their own prayers. Yet prayer is an amazing privilege. In prayer we get to talk to the Creator of the Universe; we get to talk to God. Most important people in the world never talk to me or would not answer the phone if we called. The Prime Minister never talks to us, yet God does.
Prayer very simply is communication with God. In the words of an old B.T. advert, “it is good to talk.” We do not have to use clever language or old fashioned words; we just need to be real and be open to what God will say to us.
Within the church there are two special times of prayer.
We meet every week, on Sundays, at 8.45 or 9.30am for about 40 minutes, before Sunday worship.
We meet every second Monday at 7.30pm for about an hour.
These times are open to everyone, and any situation, personal or bigger, can be the focus for prayer.
Music from many different countries
Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, strengthening community and encouraging togetherness.
Modern circle dancing draws on the music from many different countries as well as religious and classical music. The dances can be fun, joyful, simple or meditative, and all are taught and walked through first.
Many people are finding that circle dancing is a peacefully uplifting experience leading to inner stillness. It is also an excellent way of keeping fit, exercising both mind and body with like-minded people.
Our Circle Dancing afternoons are held twice a month on Mondays from 1.45 to 4 pm
£4 including afternoon tea
