Messy Church is an intergenerational worship experience with a common meal, devotions and (sometimes messy) activities. We meet Christ, just as we are, in creativity, hospitality, and celebration. Messy Church is a growing international movement which originated in the Anglican Church in Great Britain.
On their website they write:
- It is a way of being church for families involving fun.
- It is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
- It is found across the world.
- Its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.
- Please check out the video for a small introduction.
Messy Church at Holy Trinity.
The rhythm of life brightened our worship experience at our Messy Church on May 1st at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Angeles WA. We broke bread together, we celebrated Christ and then we cranked up the stereo, held hands and had some fun Norwegian style.
The excitement of the dance was followed by meditation and story telling. Now we’re sure, spring is here.

Good experiences from Canada.
The Revs Baumann successfully used the Messy Church concept to reach out to young families and unchurched people in Copper Cliff and Sudbury, Ontario. Below is a video about their MESSY EASTER in 2015.
