Messy Church

What is Messy Church?
"Messy Church 

  • is a way of being church for families involving fun
  • is found across the world 
  • values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on crativity, hospitality and celebration."

At Bamford Chapel and Norden URC we try to hold Messy Church as oftena s we can. The next date due to be in June but we have had to postpone it. As soon as a new stae is set it will be on the website and on Facebook. 

At Messy Church there are several tables set up with themed crafts on them. There is then a time when we move into church for an interactive period where someone leads a sharing time. We then move to the smaller rooms at the back of church for some food. If you want more details please phone or email Addie and Barbara Redmond: 01706 354559 or email: 

We have run two successful Virtual Messy Church events during the period of lockdown. Please see below the poster for the next one which is happening on Sunday 12th July. The preparation video will be publsihed online (via Facebook, YouTube and this webpage) on Sunday 28th June. God bless and stay safe!
